About Geelong

Victoria’s second largest city after Melbourne, Geelong is becoming recognised as a creative city-region, adaptive and enterprising. The local government has also placed a great emphasis on innovation, employment and economic growth in the Geelong region.

About the facility

Within Barwon Health, the Mental Health Directorate is a forward-looking unit with a vision to be at the leading edge of psychiatric treatment and analysis in Australia. This unit is currently looking for experienced Consultant Psychiatrists to work either in an inpatient environment (at least 3-4 years’ experience as a consultant), or an experienced psychiatrist looking to take on one of their experienced community mental health teams.

You will also have a strong background in the training and supervision of registrars and medical students.
