With a state-of-the-art medical training facility and a focus on wellbeing and professional development, Murdoch Hospital is a workplace of choice for upcoming doctors.
Murdoch offers junior medical doctors, otherwise known as JMO’s, a place to start and expand their careers across a range of fields.
Deputy Director of Medical Services Dr Emily Kuzich said our reputation for excellence in clinical care and first class tertiary level services made Murdoch a hospital of choice for medical professionals.
“What sets Murdoch apart is our high tech simulation and learning centre and our tailored career support,” she said.
“We seek to support each and every individual junior doctor’s wellbeing, professional development, and career progression.
“At Murdoch we are very fortunate to have an incredible cohort of doctors who are not only hardworking, but also compassionate, caring individuals.
“Our partnerships with other SJOG sites means we can offer experience ranging from emergency, surgery, and medicine, through to obstetrics, oncology and palliative care.”
Junior doctors also have a chance to gain experience in general and respiratory medicine, as well as coronary care, general surgery, gynaecology and geriatrics through rotations in these areas.
Dr Kuzich said junior doctors are supported with professional development and one-on-one direct consultant supervision. They receive weekly tutorials and also have access to a brand new JMO lounge to unwind.
“We aim to create a positive work environment for our doctors and we have a strong focus on culture here,” Dr Kuzich said.
“We also provide rostering for a comfortable work-life balance to ensure our doctors are well-rested and best able to care for our patients.”
