Emergency Medical Officer

Western Health is a major tertiary health service serving a diverse, multicultural and multilingual community in the rapidly growing western suburbs of Melbourne. It operates three Emergency Departments (ED) at the Footscray, Sunshine and Williamstown campuses.

An expansion of the Sunshine Emergency Department has been completed and includes a new resuscitation, fast track, short stay, paediatric hub, Behavioural Assessment Unit and a crisis hub. The construction of the New Footscray Hospital has commenced and is planned for completion in 2025.

The ED Medical officer (EDMO) role offers a unique opportunity to join a growing and dedicated Emergency Medicine (EM) team. The position requires applicants to be eligible for general or provisional registration as a medical practitioner with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority (AHPRA). If AHPRA registration is limited, your application must include evidence that the level of supervision required is Level 2 or higher.

EDMO positions are rotated across the two training campuses (Sunshine and Footscray).  It is ideal for those with 2+ years post graduate experience, wanting a broad emergency experience, before committing to a career in ED. It may suit those not yet experienced enough for the ED Registrar role including GP trainees. At the same time, it provides an opportunity to complete an EM Certificate and obtain further experience to transition to an ED Registrar position.

EDMO positions are rotated across the two training campuses (Sunshine and Footscray).  Both Emergency Departments (ED) are accredited by ACEM (Australasian College for Emergency Medicine) for Advanced Training as urban district sites. Sunshine ED currently treats over 100,000 patient presentations per year. This includes over 28,000 paediatric presentations in a dedicated paediatric area. Emergency obstetrics and gynaecology are also predominantly seen at this campus. Footscray ED manages over 40,000 adult patient presentations per year. Both departments offer exposure to a diverse and interesting case mix in a well-supported environment with access to all major surgical and medical specialties.

Both sites are supported by active on the floor Consultant leadership, supervision and education from 0730hrs – 2400hrs, seven days a week.

Our education program is well regarded. We offer regular weekly teaching to cater for the needs of junior medical staff working in the department. ACEM Emergency Medicine Certificate (EMC) candidates are also well supported.  There is the potential to support candidates in the Intermediate or Advanced Emergency Medicine Training Programs (IEMTP, AEMTP). An active research team provides support for those interested in research through the Joseph Epstein Centre for Emergency Medicine Research.

This position is predominantly focused on treating adult patients though there may be opportunity to gain exposure to paediatric presentations via dedicated paediatric ED rotations.
