Consultant Psychiatrist
Position Available

  • Well established private practice with full back office and professional support.
  • Huge referral base with an “instant” case load.
  • Multidisciplinary psychiatric team environment.
  • Aligned with Australia’s newest private mental health hospital.
  • Toowoomba is a vibrant regional Queensland hub offering a great family lifestyle.
  • Significant Income opportunity dependent on availability.
Our supportive private psychiatric practice needs an additional consultant psychiatrist to help with the increased caseload resulting from our involvement in building Australia’s newest specialist private mental health hospital, The Toowoomba Clinic which opened on 7 October 2020.

As a regional hub, patients are drawn from up to 700 km away and practitioners have waiting lists of about 6 months before new patients can be seen.  An energetic psychiatrist can be as busy as they want to be. We can assure any practitioners considering relocation an “instant” case-load of private patients and if you are interested, on accreditation to the panel at the hospital, an additional opportunity exists to consult with patients as a VMO.  The opportunity to work flexible hours and days would suit a person keen to balance multiple work/life/research interests.

After a trial period of 12 months we will consider applications to invest in the Hospital.

Our collaborative team includes 3 psychiatrists, a clinical psychosexual therapist and four mental health nurses.  Applications from practitioners with an interest in either general adult, child-adolescent and old-age psychiatry, or addiction are welcome.

Opportunities exist to practice from our established offices or to commence practice from professional suites located in the hospital complex.  We are willing to discuss both options.

  • No setup costs -- you pay a competitive percentage of billings.
  • Focus on patients while we handle office support, IT and HR.
  • Build relationships across the community with referrers and aligned specialists.
  • Large modern consulting rooms.
  • Established referral pathways with related specialties and allied health.
Essential Criteria - Applicants must have FRANZCP, specialist registration with AHPRA and be eligible for an unrestricted Medicare provider number.
