This opportunity will suit a highly skilled clinician with extensive experience in the practice of evidence based O&G.
This role may offer teaching and academic opportunities with the hospital's affiliated universities.

As a part of the development, clinical services will also be expanding and will be offering sub specialty interests in the area of maternal fetal medicine and emergency gynaecology. Experience in these areas will be advantageous to candidates.
This city has outstanding amenities and excellent housing, educational and leisure opportunities. It is home to national icons and monuments as well as natural treasures. The coast and ski fields are nearby and Sydney is only three hours away by road.
