Austin Health is the major provider of tertiary health services, health professional education and research across 3 campuses in the northeast of Melbourne and state-wide. Austin Health is world-renowned for its research and specialist work in cancer, liver transplantation, spinal cord injuries, neurology, endocrinology, mental health and rehabilitation.


An exciting opportunity currently exists for an enthusiastic  Fellow in Pain Medicine to join our Pain Service in 2021.


Details of Department


Austin Health is an accredited Level 1 training facility for the Fellowship of the FPM, ANZCA, which oversees competency-based speciality medical education in Pain Medicine.


The Austin takes great pride on balancing appropriate clinical supervision and service requirements. We aim to provide regular structured feedback and teaching from our consultants (via the FPM entrustable professional activities embodied in workplace-based assessments) to develop our trainees in all the domains of Pain Medicine practice including the Professional, Communicator, Collaborator, Leader, Health Advocate and Scholar roles.


The experience gained during the training period will help the trainee become a better physician in dealing with complex patients with pain problems in both an outpatient and inpatient setting. The trainee will learn aspects of acute pain, chronic pain, palliative care, cancer pain and addiction medicine from the pain perspective.


To be successful in this role you must have:



  • A commitment to Austin Health values

  • Current registration as a Medical Practitioner in Australia with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

  • Current rights to work in Australia (Australian or New Zealand citizenship, Australian permanent residence, or a temporary visa with entitlement to work).

  • A “growth mindset”. Includes an openness to both giving and receiving constructive feedback, with an emphasis on critical reflection and continuous improvement (being a reflective practitioner).

  • Registration or eligibility to register as a trainee with the FPM (either completed, or be training towards specialist qualification – see paragraph 3.1 of the FPM Training handbook for further details.)

  • A demonstrated interest in Pain Medicine. This may be evidenced by either intention to sit, or completion of, the Foundations of Pain Medicine examination; and intention to complete admission to FPM fellowship by completion of the training program.


For full information, refer to the attached Position Description.


Work with us! Your reward is to work in a collaborative environment which will provide you with opportunities for ongoing training and development. Your benefits will include salary packaging, and employee assistance program.


All appointments are made subject to a satisfactory National Police Check conducted by Austin Health and if required, a Working With Children Check.
