Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research


An exciting opportunity exists for an international trainee in Paediatric Surgery at The Royal Children’s Hospital

Applications close Friday May 5th 2023

The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne is a leading provider of specialist public health services for children and adolescents and is the major specialist Paediatric hospital in the state of Victoria. We care for children from Tasmania and southern New South Wales, as well as other states around Australia and overseas. RCH has an international reputation as a center of clinical excellence and is a national teaching, training and research hospital providing quaternary health services.

Applications are now open for international applicants for Paediatric Surgery Fellow positions. These positions can be involved in a range of paediatric surgical specialities including trauma, burns, urology, oncology hepatobiliary, thoracic, neonatal and transplant surgery. Dedicated training in a specific area may be available and can be discussed upon application. Working in one of the busiest paediatric surgical service in Australasia, the roles are demanding, but provide great exposure to a wide variety
of paediatric surgical conditions and an opportunity to enhance one’s surgical training. These fully funded positions run from August or October 2024 (negotiable) for a twelve month period. They are most suitable for a senior trainee, ideally in the year prior or after their local Fellowship examination.

Applications will only be received through the RCH careers website and should include a covering letter, a current C.V. and a letter of support from either a Paediatric Surgeon at your current hospital or a Paediatric Surgical training supervisor.
