Position Summary

Applications are now open to international applicants for the position of Surgical Registrar in the Department of Paediatric Surgery starting in August 2019 for a term of one year.


This position has the opportunity to be involved in a range of paediatric surgical specialities including trauma, burns, urology, oncology hepatobiliary, thoracic, neonatal and transplant surgery. Working in one of the busiest paediatric surgical service in Australasia, the role of Surgical Registrar is a demanding one, but provides great exposure to a wide variety of paediatric surgical conditions and an opportunity to enhance one’s surgical training. This is a great platform for future paediatric surgeons and urologists.


The position is most suitable for a Senior Trainee, ideally in the year prior to Fellowship examination.


Applications close on Friday May 4th 2018. All applications received will be considered and short listed candidates will be offered an interview. All interviews will be conducted by videoconference. At the completion of the interview process, successful candidates will be notified as soon as referee checks are completed. This is to provide sufficient time for each candidate to complete the lengthy immigration process associated with working in Australia.


Appointed applicants must be able to satisfy the English Language requirements for medical registration in Australia. Information about these requirements can be found on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency at


It will be an advantage for applicants to have completed these requirements prior to interview.


Because of the limited number of positions available, we regret that we are often unable to offer positions to excellent candidates. All unsuccessful applicants will receive prompt written communication of their failure to progress. We are very happy for unsuccessful candidates to apply again in the following year.


The following documents are required on application

  • Covering letter
  • Current curriculum vitae
  • Letter of support from either a Paediatric Surgeon at your current hospital of employment OR a Paediatric Surgical training supervison
