Trainee Positions

Neuro fellowship in Perth

Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth is now employing two Neuro Anaesthesia fellows each year, starting in either February or August.

It is a 12-month fellowship with 6 months in Neuro Anaesthesia and 6 months doing a General Fellowship. During the 6-month Neuro Anaesthesia fellowship, fellows can expect the following weekly schedules:

  • At least 2 full days of elective neurosurgery.
  • half day non-clinical time.
  • half day off to take advantage of the fantastic weather, wonderful beaches, and extensive water sports that Perth offers.
  • A share of the after-hours roster with opportunities to be involved with emergency neurosurgical cases.
  • No night shifts!

The fellowship is open to Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists applicants in their last year of training (Provisional Fellow or ATY3).

For applicants from overseas training programs, the last year of training is not a strict requirement, as long as the applicant has completed at least two years of advanced training.

As with all SCGH fellowships, interstate and overseas applications are encouraged as part of the departments commitment to educational exchange.

Temporary Medical Board registration is available for overseas trainees taking part in a structured accredited training program. This is a slow process, taking significant effort, but it is reliably achieved.
