Medical vacancies

Working with us will expose you to diverse and interesting clinical care and gives you the chance to work within our vibrant country communities. 

Here are some testimonials from our practitioners;

  • "I work across five different hospitals and I get paid to fly over beautiful scenery that tourists would pay thousands of dollars to see and at the same time - save lives! Tell me, is there a better job than this?" - Consultant Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • "I was an inner-city GP in central London for 20 years and it felt like I was just cruising at the wheel not feeling fulfilled with the work I was doing. Moving to WACHS is unquestionably the best move I have ever made. I now spend most of my clinical time practising near the top of my scope." - Rural Generalist (Senior Medical Practitioner)
  • "Don’t hesitate, there are always other doctors you can refer to as well as an amazing telehealth system which will connect you directly with a specialist with the click of a button, so you are never alone!" - Rural Generalist (District Medical Officer)
  • "Don’t be scared, just jump in! As is the case with anything in life, the more you put in, the more you will get out of it. There are many practitioners who are readily available to talk to you about what it’s like to work in each region, so reach out and start the conversation!" - Consultant Psychiatrist
