Position Summary

Specialist cardiologist needed to support a very busy and dynamic practice in Bathurst, NSW.  The position involves consultations and all aspects of noninvasive cardiology including exercise testing, Echocardiography, pacemaker testing and ambulatory monitoring, all performed in a new (18/12 old) custom built facility.  There is currently one cardiologist and a respiratory physician about to join the practice. 

There is a busy Base Hospital in Bathurst with >35,000 ED presentations annually and an actively growing physician subspeciality base.  The medical department is supported by 4 BPTs and one AT.  The opportunity exists for the successful candidate to support cardiology services at the hospital and potentially participate in a general medical admission roster, if desired.

Bathurst is an actively growing town of almost 40,000 people, with excellent schools, shops, sporting facilities and cultural activities.  Less than 3 hours by road from Sydney, it is also serviced by daily air and train services.  Real estate is very reasonably priced and offers either a more urban or rural lifestyle.

Expressions of interest should be sent to: Bathurst Cardiology, 185 Durham Street, BATHURST NSW 2795.
