This stunning region offers a family friendly lifestyle along with excellent nightlife and cultural activities. Affordable housing and reasonable cost of living, great schools and Universities all make this location one of the best regional cities in Australia.

We are supported by a wide range of subspecialties. Within medicine these include general medicine, respiratory, infectious diseases, cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, haematology and oncology. The surgical department includes general surgery, orthopaedics, ENT, maxillofacial and paediatric surgery. Other specialties include paediatrics, psychiatry, ophthalmology and obstetrics/gynaecology.

Trainees are supported with close working relationships with intensive care and anaesthetics for critical presentations.   We have a relaxed and information packed 4 hour weekly teaching program.


AWH is committed to Equal Employment Opportunity, Ethical Practice, and the principles of Cultural Diversity and Social inclusion.  Applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged. All appointments are made subject to a satisfactory Criminal History Record Check and a Working with Children Check.
