We have an opportunity for a Consulting Psychiatrist to join us as a VMO at our new specialist private mental health hospital in Toowoomba, Qld. The Toowoomba Clinic is well managed, has a contemporary evidence-based approach to patient care and offers a wide range of therapies for all our patients.
Join a collaborative team which includes visiting medical specialists, doctors, a clinical psychosexual therapist, psychologists, a dietician, exercise physiologist, rTMS therapists, mental health nurses and chefs. Applications from practitioners with an interest in either general adult, child-adolescent, older person psychiatry, or addiction are welcome.
You can choose to operate from an established group practice, or you can  commence your practice from professional suites located in the hospital complex (rent free for 2 years) and receive free parking and free lunch.  
Ideally applicants will have FRANZCP, specialist registration with AHPRA and be eligible for an unrestricted Medicare provider number.  We are willing to consider applications from psychiatrists with international medical qualifications requiring a Section 19AB exemption for a Medicare Provider Number granted by the Federal Health Minister and will consider doctors from countries which are regarded as having comparable professional standards for the RANZCP Fellowship pathway.
