Psychiatry Registrars - Accredited Specialists Posts and Unaccredited Registrars

About the Mental Health Department

Barwon Health, based in Geelong and one of the largest and most comprehensive regional health services in Australia, is seeking exceptional medical practitioners to join us as Psychiatry Trainees from February 2018. This is an out of session recruitment and hence we encourage all applications interested to apply or enquire immediately.

Successful applicants will join a cohort of 22 psychiatry registrars at Barwon Health undertaking rotations within Barwon Health, Private Hospitals and Mercy Health in Werribee who are currently completing accredited psychiatry training with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP).

More information about our comprehensive psychiatry program at Barwon Health is available here:


Specialist training positions available

We are seeking current RANZCP College Trainees or Unaccredited Registrars to join us for next year, commencing in February or August, for a 6 or 12 month contract.  Trainees wishing to transfer into our program must submit their RANZCP college training transcript with their application. This is an exciting and rare opportunity to join our 22 strong registrar workforce.  We have vacancies that would be suitable for specialist trainees in Stage 3 of training, those seeking to undertake specialist training in general adult and eating disorders, and for unaccredited registrars. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate trainees transferring in Stage 1 or 2 if they have not completed their C&L and CAMHS rotations.

We provide an extensive variety of core and non-core RANZCP training rotations, all of which are supervised by accredited RANZCP Consultant Psychiatrist Supervisors. We are also passionate about education and research, with a strong connection with Deakin University School of Medicine and the Deakin University Psychiatric Research Unit (IMPACT Strategic Research Centre: https://goo.gl/j9i8Oq )

General information for applicants

Please submit all applications online including a detailed covering letter. All candidates not currently with Barwon Health Psychiatry Training must complete this online short survey. http://goo.gl/ZcAKmR

All applicants must be available to attend an interview in person.

All applicants must have general medical registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Agency (AHPRA). Applicants who have been accepted for training by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists or who are current Trainees will be given preference.

We will consider applications from candidates overseas seeking specified Specialist Training (see http://www.ranzcp.org/Pre-Fellowship/Overseas-specialists/Specified-Training.aspx.

We are not currently accepting exemption candidates unless you are transferring from an existing placement. Other overseas candidates following the AMC exam pathway will not be considered unless they fulfil the requirements for entry into training with RANZCP and have applied for entry into training to commence February 2017.

Barwon Health’s services are underpinned by the five core values of respect, compassion, commitment, accountability and innovation. The successful application would be expected to embrace these core values both personally and in their work with staff, students, patients and families. Individuals considering applying are encouraged to refer to the Barwon Health Strategic Plan (www.barwonhealthstrategicplan.org.au) as the successful candidate will be expected to engage with the plan and assist with its implementation and ongoing development
