Where you’ll be working

Sitting within one of Victoria’s six regional health Centres, Barwon Health serves the community of Greater Geelong and beyond. Victoria’s second largest city after Melbourne! We serve over 500,000 people through the efforts of over 8,000 staff and more than 1200 volunteers.

About the Role

The Medical Administration Registrar role at Barwon Health is an established role. This role is supported by two consultant Medical Administrators (FRACMAs) and an experienced Chief Medical Officer. Protected teaching and training time is provided to the trainee and participation in local and College-run education and continuous professional development activities is actively encouraged. This role is a senior management and training role in a large, complex, regional tertiary referral centre which provides regional ECMO and COVID-19 ICU services. As Victoria’s largest regional health service, Barwon Health plays a significant role in collaborating with other health services in the Barwon South West region, including running the Barwon South West Public Health Unit (PHU).

This position offers the trainee an opportunity to take a senior role in key management tasks and projects and is well suited to a senior trainee seeking to leverage off structured teaching and support to undertake their Fellowship examination. The role provides the trainee with exposure to all aspects of medical administration and leadership across clinical governance, medical workforce and education, clinical operations, medico-legal, change management, service improvement and research governance. Aspects and specific portfolios of the role may be tailored to meet RACMA training requirements based on the successful candidate’s needs, whether a senior or junior medical administration registrar.

The successful candidate will gain a unique opportunity as a trainee to participate in strategic clinical services planning and quality improvement initiatives across a regional network.
