Level 4, 348 Edward Street
Brisbane QLD 4000
We are a private practice in Kingaroy (population 10 000) is situated as a comfortable 2 1/2 hour drive North West of Brisbane, 2 1/2 hour drive West of the Sunshine Coast and 2 hours drive North of Toowoomba surrounded by beautiful farmland and wineries.
We have a heavy focus on diabetes and neurovascular early intervention, assessment and treatment with a significant amount of wound care involved. However, there is also a large amount of biomechanical and paediatric work and nail surgery in addition to some Aged Care work (our contracts are long term, well set up and run smoothly). There is some travel involved as we have several satellite clinics (no more than an hour from base) and also provide house calls. Interdisciplinary care is an essential component of our practice with very strong ties to other Allied Health Professionals and GPs within the community. Interdisciplinary communication occurs on a daily basis.
We understand that podiatrists have lives outside the job - partners, children and community involvement - we know because we have them too - which is why flexibility is an integral part of this position.
This is a position for someone who loves to be a podiatrist with a wide range of challenges but wants to be part of a team - a team that provides support, mentoring, education and flexibility. We are a very busy practice and we work hard but the number of hours you want to work and when you work them is very negotiable. Helping you balance a work/family schedule is a priority.
This is a position for someone who is passionate about primary health education - particularly to those in the community with low education levels and little to no health literacy - we make a difference to the lives of our patients because we not only care but understand our patients also have other things happening in their lives.
The position is well paid and above award rates with your overall income dependent on your experience and number of hours you choose to work. Any applicant will need to provide references/referees and attend an interview as I have a great team (both admin and podiatrists - both are very important to me) and the applicant will need to "mesh" with this team.
Clinic hours are 8.30am - 5pm.
Occasional information stalls/presentations are held during evenings and weekends but these are optional
This position may be eligible for a scholarship or bursary for ongoing professional development. https://www.healthworkforce.com.au/health-workforce-scholarship-program/
