Anaesthetics/ICU - Royal Hobart Hospital

SRMOs in Acute Care Medicine

The Department of Critical Care Medicine (DCCM), in conjunction with the Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine (DAPM) at the Royal Hobart Hospital, offer Senior Resident Medical Officer positions in Acute Care. These positions will consist of six months in Intensive Care and six months in Anaesthesia at Senior RMO level during the one-year tenure. Up to six positions may be available. These positions are only for candidates who will be post-graduate year 3 - 5 during 2022.

These positions are highly sought after.

They are of interest to those pursuing careers in Intensive Care Medicine, Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine or Remote and Rural Medicine.

Since their inception in 2015, they have provided a pathway into registrar training positions in Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthesia in Tasmania for many trainees.

In ICU, SRMOs will participate in a fully rotational roster with base hours of 80 hours per fortnight.

They will work under the supervision of Consultant Intensivists and Senior Registrars in hours. After hours, SRMOs are supported by ICU registrars working the same shifts and on-call Senior Registrars and Specialists. The ICU is very busy and has a broad medical and surgical casemix including major trauma, neurosurgery and cardiac surgery.

In Anaesthesia, SRMOs will work under the direct supervision of a Specialist Anaesthetist encompassing a broad casemix within main theatres and the day procedure unit, as well as involvement with preadmission clinics and the acute pain service.

The work pattern is daytime hours with subsequent participation in the after-hours roster when assessed as competent to do so.

Candidates may state their term order preference, however the allocation will be determined by the two departments and is non-negotiable.

These positions will align with the RMO term dates - 10 January 2022 and it may be possible to extend the contract end date to align with registrar start dates for 2023 (29 January 2023).

These applicants should clearly state the number of weeks worked in each specialty and if they were redeployed elsewhere during the pandemic in 2020. Such applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine if suitable for SRMO positions, or if the candidate is better suited to a registrar position in either department. This determination will be entirely at our discretion and is not open to negotiation.
