Visiting Ophthalmologist wanted - Emerald Hospital, QLD

Emerald Hospital in Central Queensland is looking for a VMO for their Ophthalmology program starting in January 2022.

This successful eye program started in 2019 and has been offering an outpatient’s clinic and cataract surgery.

The ophthalmic clinic is situated in a mobile facility parked in the hospital grounds. The theatre was recently upgraded for Cataract surgery.

Clinics are held every month for two days and Cataract Surgery bi-monthly.  Most patients are referred to the clinic by an Optometrist.

This position is for a Bi-monthly roster with a Surgery list on a Wednesday followed by a 2-day outpatient’s clinic on the Thursday and Friday. An experienced senior orthoptist and registered nurse complete the team.

Whilst this is a 3-day roster, the surgery could be separated with another VMO attending the outpatient clinic.

The VMO would be employed by CQHHS (Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service). Remuneration is under outreach conditions and there is a generous outreach travel allowance.

Interested parties should contact: -

Dr Rowan Porter 0413 462 261   or   Professor Paul Mitchell 0428 496 141
