About the Role of Ophthalmology Senior Registrar and Ophthalmology Fellow (Cataract and Medical Retina)

Applications are invited to apply for the positions of Ophthalmology Senior Registrar or Ophthalmology Fellow.

The Ophthalmology Department provides clinical services at Monash Medical Centre and Cranbourne Centre. Surgical services at the Cranbourne Day Surgery provide the second highest annual number of cataract operations in Victoria, with a smaller surgical service at Monash Medical Centre. On-call emergency services are provided at MMC, Monash Children's, Dandenong, Casey and Moorabbin Hospitals, and Kingston Centre. The Department comprises the Director of Department, twenty-two sessional consultants and six orthoptists.

Outpatient clinics at Clayton provide inpatient and outpatient referral services for both adult and paediatric populations and cover all aspects of ophthalmology including medical and surgical retina, paediatrics/ocular motility, corneal and oculoplastics. As part of the largest health network in Victoria, the ophthalmic cases are often associated with complex medical problems.

Our mission is to deliver quality, patient-centred care that meets the needs of our diverse community. You will have appropriate qualifications, registration and professional experience, preferably being able to perform routine cataract surgery independently.
