JOB DESCRIPTION

Hospital Medical Officer (ENT / Ophthalmology)


5 x Full Time positions commencing February 2022

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital is Australia’s only specialist eye, ear, nose and throat hospital. We have been here for Victorians, caring for their senses and improving their quality of life for over 150 years.


The hospital operates from a central hub in East Melbourne and also provides support for service delivery in other outpatient and community settings in Victoria and via telemedicine facilities. As the largest public provider of ophthalmology and ENT services in Victoria we deliver more than half of Victoria’s public eye surgery and all of Victoria’s public cochlear implants. We see over 220,000 patients a year, with over 160,000 outpatients, nearly 44,000 emergency patients and nearly 18,000 inpatients.



The HMO will cover both the wards and Emergency Department on a rotational basis. Ward HMOs participate in daily ward rounds and work closely with the unit Registrars and Fellows. He/she is also responsible for ensuring discharge summaries and other documentation are completed allowing for timely discharge. Provision may also be made to attend ENT and Ophthalmology outpatient clinics. Whilst HMOs are primarily rostered to work weekdays, evenings and weekends, there may be occasions throughout the year where night shifts and other cover is required in our Emergency Department.



PLEASE NOTE BEFORE APPLYING: It is important that applicants have an interest in learning and developing skills in ophthalmology and ENT. Our HMOs spend extensive time on the wards and peri operative care, and many of our patients are elderly with medical comorbidities so it is important that you have a strong general medicine and acute medicine background. This previous experience is critical, coupled with a desire to learn ophthalmology and ENT.



Please address the above in your covering letter for your application to be considered.



HMO's Salary and conditions of employment will be in accordance with the AMA Victoria Doctors-in-Training Agreement 2018-2021
