The retirement of a GP Obstetrician in a neighbouring town has created an opportunity for a GP Obstetrician to join the Practice in Ararat.

Obstetric Services are presently provided by the practice’s three GP Obstetricians supported by a visiting Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist. They currently deliver 100 babies a year, and expect the number to increase to 170 within several years.

The role includes participating in the procedural on-call weekend roster. You should be an experienced GP with a Postgraduate qualification in Women’s Reproductive Health Care. You should be able to manage the Antenatal Care of low-risk to moderate-risk patients, perform normal and assisted deliveries, and perform basic Gynaecological procedures.

Ararat is an attractive, historic town in the foothills of the Grampians and Pyrenees Mountains. It is now the commercial centre of a rich pastoral, wine and fruit growing district only 2.5 hours from Melbourne by car or train. The town has affordable housing and excellent education, leisure and shopping facilities. Background information may be found on: and
