Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) is looking for junior doctors as part of NSW Health’s annual junior medical officer (JMO) recruitment campaign.
The campaign encourages the future generation of doctors to join local health districts in order to gain the valuable skills and training required for the role.
Auburn Hospital’s emergency doctor Alvina Ng said she would encourage all JMOs to apply for a position at Western Sydney Local Health District.
“I knew I wanted to stay in western Sydney, so when an opportunity at Auburn Hospital came up, I knew I had to take it.”
Alvina says the people at Auburn feel like family to her – and that the medical workforce, no matter the seniority, really care for each other.
“It’s a great working environment at Auburn Hospital. Like any work place, it can be challenging, but this exposure to hard or complex situations only makes you a better doctor,” she said.
“Regardless of which hospital you are in, those first few weeks or months as a JMO can be quite stressful, but WSLHD will ensure you are well supported and that you are constantly learning.”
Applications are open now for 2022 Junior Medical Officer positions with NSW Health. Trainee positions are available in all speciality areas, including psychiatry, general medicine and emergency medicine.
Applications for the main round close on August 12.
