Orthopaedic Surgery Fellow
Applications close 28 July 2019.
These are 12 month appointments in the Orthopaedic Surgery department.
The successful applicants will be exposed to a wide variety of surgical procedures, discussion forums, and multidisciplinary meetings with duties including management of pre-operative and post-operative care in both trauma and elective orthopaedic conditions.
The Alfred Trauma Centre is a modern purpose-built facility. The Major Trauma Service is one of three Victorian Major Trauma Services (The Alfred, The Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Royal Children's Hospital). We treat over half of all major Victorian trauma cases.
The Department of Trauma Surgery provides state-of-the-art emergency trauma and critical care for injured patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Almost 2,400 trauma patients are admitted annually, with over 800 of these patients classed as major trauma. Most of these patients sustain orthopaedic injuries which are referred to the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery for management including specialised expertise in complex pelvic, spinal, and lower limb reconstructive surgery.
The Alfred also has a co-located dedicated elective centre called The Alfred Centre which provides additional protected bed capacity for a busy elective program that provides the full range of elective orthopaedic surgical procedures for the local community.
Involvement in clinical research is actively encouraged.
Applications are encouraged from suitably qualified doctors with prior training in orthopaedic surgery at Postgraduate Year 5 or higher including fellows with an interest in orthopaedic trauma surgery.
