The Canberra Hospital is a 530+ bed hospital, fully accredited as a University teaching hospital. With its well established and ever evolving teaching program, it offers an ideal environment for trainees, and is large enough to enjoy the advantages of tertiary metropolitan hospitals but small enough to allow the personal and professional development that is sometimes overlooked in a busy inner-city hospital.

The Medical Imaging Department at the Canberra Hospital is a fully integrated facility including two 1.5T MRI Units, CT, 4Ultrasound rooms, Nuclear Medicine unit with 4Gamma Cameras and Interventional Radiology with two angio suites, Breast Service and PET/CT with complex and interesting workload.

 

Appointment is available for an Interventional Fellow with Medical Imaging at the Canberra Hospital. Applications should be from suitably qualified medical graduates eligible for General registration with the Medical Board of Australia and FRANZCR or equivalent.

1. Manage under supervision the daily list of interventional cases coming through the Dept.

2. Perform and assist a range of vascular and non-vascular interventional radiological (IR) procedures commensurate with

    level of experience/expertise.

3. Attend and contribute to clinical meetings where IR cases are discussed.

4. Organise monthly IR M&M audit

5. Actively pursue one or more research projects and submit for presentation at RANZCR ASM 2019, with view to

    subsequent publication.

6. Undertake other duties as directed, within the approved scope of clinical practice, and according to  RANZCR Fellowship

    guidelines.
