Head of Department - General Medicine (H21_3906)

The Royal Hobart Hospital is the tertiary referral hospital for Tasmania, and the principal teaching hospital for the University of Tasmania School of Medicine. The Hospital provides most specialist medical services for the region or state.

The Department of General Medicine currently has 13 staff specialists working between General Medicine and sub-speciality. The staff are organised into four units. Each unit is also staffed with two Junior Medical Officers and three General Medical Registrars who are usually pre-exams. There are also, advanced trainees in General Medicine. On average, 12-16 patients are admitted over a 24-hour cycle plus sub-speciality medicine admissions, with total admission under the Division of Medicine around 20-25 admissions per day

The Director, General Medicine (the Director) will be responsible, in collaboration with the Divisional Management Team, for leading all strategic and operational facets of the General Medicine service to ensure the provision of safe, effective, and efficient care. The Medical Services Division has developed a Road Map for the future but are very open to considering new ideas. One of their objectives is moving towards a Home Ward Model and are looking to the Director to lead this process.

Reporting to the Clinical Director Acute Medical, you will be responsible for the delivery of clinical care, teaching, training, research, quality, and management across General Medicine. The unit has a total of 15 staff, and you will be supported by a Nurse Unit Manager.

A highly accomplished clinical leader in your own right (FRACP or equivalent), with a commitment to leading change to develop a new model of care in the unit, you will contribute significantly to the transformation of the General Medicine Unit at Royal Hobart Hospital. You will also continue to provide clinical services, but generous time allocation has been allowed to support the undertaking of your leadership responsibilities.
