Alfred Health is a leader in health care delivery, improvement, research and education. We are the main provider of health services to people living in the inner southeast suburbs of Melbourne, from ambulatory, to inpatient and home and community based services.

This is a 12 month appointment in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, commencing August 2022.

The successful applicant will be exposed to a wide variety of surgical procedures, discussion forums, and multidisciplinary meetings, and includes managing pre-operative and post-operative care in both trauma and elective orthopaedic conditions.

The Alfred is one of the major Victorian trauma service providers, treating approximately half of all Victorian trauma cases.  It receives the greatest number of trauma cases of any hospital in Australasia and is a national leader in clinical care and research in this area. The Department of Trauma Surgery provides state-of-the-art emergency trauma and critical care for injured patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Almost 2400 trauma patients are admitted annually, with over 800 of these patients classed as major trauma. Most of these patients sustain orthopaedic injuries which are referred to the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery for management including specialised expertise in complex pelvic, spinal, and lower limb reconstructive surgery.

The Trauma Centre is within a modern purpose built facility, which includes:

  • Onsite integrated helipad capable of receiving four helicopters
  • Four major trauma resuscitation / theatre bays with overhead imaging
  • Trauma ward
  • 32 bed ICU with 10 designated trauma beds with full bedside monitoring
  • Hyperbaric service
  • State burns unit
  • 35 bed Orthopaedic ward

The Alfred also has a co-located dedicated elective centre called The Alfred Centre which provides additional protected bed capacity for a busy elective program that provides the full range of elective orthopaedic surgical procedures for the local community.
