    The Warragul Senior Registrar (SR) position is perfect for trainees considering a career in general paediatrics, particularly if rural practice is a possibility. The SR acts as a junior consultant with their own patient load, but closely mentored by senior colleagues. They are exposed to all facets of rural and community practice as well as being able to participate in subspecialty clinics and acute paediatrics at West Gippsland Hospital.

    The West Gippsland Paediatric Group consists of 6 paediatricians working closely together in a very positive and harmonious environment, all of whom have a strong committment to training.

    The beautiful rural environment of West Gippsland within an hour of the surf, the snow, the wineries and the gippsland foodie circuit, but only 50 mins from Melbourne, is an added bonus. This job also allows trainees to see the workings of a paediatric private practice in a safe and secure environment.
