Head Medical: Recruiting GPs for exciting and rewarding posts throughout Australia
Head Medical are delighted to announce that we have been appointed sub-contractors to work with RHWA (Rural Health Workforce Australia) to attract General Practitioners to rural and regional areas of Australia.
We have access to a wide variety of GP jobs throughout the country, some of which are just an hour from the metropolitan cities.
Why go rural?
Working in regional and rural Australia is not just a job – it’s a way of life! Why not start your days with a swim on a remote beach or a bike ride to work – you could be passing lush rainforests, mango or coffee farms, but you certainly won’t be stuck in traffic during rush hour.
This is not to say that it’s an isolated life though. You would be an integral member of a friendly and thriving local community. Sports play a big role here: Try the local tennis, golf, horse riding or sailing club, or get involved in the arts communities by joining the orchestra or a drama club.
Professionally, working as a GP in rural or regional location means you’re making a real difference to the community and for many GPs it’s the most rewarding role of their careers.
For more reasons to go rural – have a look at our blog.
The roles are open to GPs who qualify for the Category one or two RACGP Pathway (you will need to have one of the following qualifications: JCPTGP, PMETB, CCT, Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners, Certificate of the Joint Committee in Postgraduate Training for General Practice or Certificate from the Post Medical Education Training Board). For a list of all qualifications (incl. non UK), please have a look here.
Benefits and incentives
There are more choices and greater financial incentives to relocate than ever before. Under the Australian Standard Geographical Remoteness Areas (ASGC-RA) system the number of rural doctors eligible for RHWS (Rural Health Workforce Strategy) incentives has significantly increased.
