About Northern Health:

As an organisation we have a clear focus on how we service and partner with our community, including our strategy of helping the community stay well when at home. Our reputation of community minded, inclusive and progressive is matched to none.

Northern Health is located in the rapidly growing northern suburbs with projected growth the biggest in the state. With a booming, culturally rich and diverse community, and less than an hour’s drive from the CBD, Melbourne’s North is fast becoming the place to be!

The Role:

An exciting opportunity exists for an enthusiastic Intensive Care Registrar to join the team at Northern Health. The 412-bed Northern Hospital (TNH) provides a broad range of medical, surgical, paediatric and obstetric services and includes an 18-bed ICU with over 1400 admissions per annum. TNH ICU is a Level II unit as described by The College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) Document IC-1 on ‘Minimum Standards for Intensive Care Units’. The Northern has the one of the busiest Emergency departments in Victoria with 70,000 attendances per annum. Approximately 75% of ICU admissions are from the Northern Emergency Department.

The Northern Intensive Care Training Scheme (NICTS) provides accredited training suitable for CICM, RACP, ANZCA and ACEM candidates. This is a highly structured teaching program for Basic and Advanced trainees. Additionally specific exam practice is offered. Day leave is allowed for all registrars to attend the monthly Victorian Intensive Care network (VICEN) teaching days. 8 enthusiastic Intensive Care Physicians, with experience and qualifications in echocardiography, bronchoscopy, perioperative medicine, emergency medicine, internal medicine, retrieval medicine, and research support the training program. Amongst them are two CICM Fellowship examiners. The Intensivists provide on-site support and supervision of all trainees.

The ICU offers a diverse patient case mix. At the Northern Intensive care a CICM trainee will benefit from becoming competent with managing complex medical patients and extensive exposure to Hepatic, Colorectal and Thoracic surgery. All medical specialities are represented at the Northern. All surgical specialities except Cardiac and Neurosurgery are represented.

Our current registrars have exposure to:

  • Emergency assessment of Adult and Paediatric and patients as part of the MET (Medical Emergency Team).

  • Participation in ANZICS CTG multicentre trials, as well as support for registrar audit and research projects, in-house support with data analysis
  • Availability of rotations in anaesthesia and internal medicine

To be successful in this role you must demonstrate:

  • A commitment to patient centered care
  • A commitment to your ongoing education

Applicants are welcome from non-ICU trainees or applicants who are yet to join the training programme. They should ideally have 4 years of postgraduate experience and previous ICU experience.
