The Hospital:
It’s the second oldest hospital in Australia and the largest hospital in Tasmania. The Hospital is the tertiary referral hospital for Tasmania and is the principal teaching hospital for the University of Tasmania Medical School. The Hospital provides most specialist medical services for the region.

It provides acute, sub-acute, mental health and aged care inpatient and ambulatory services to a population of about 250,000 people in the southern region.

Also, the hospital provides a comprehensive range of general and specialty medical and surgical services including many state-wide services such as cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, extensive burns treatment, hyperbaric medicine, neonatal and paediatric intensive care and high risk obstetrics.

The Emergency Department opened in March 2007. The department includes an assessment and planning and a short stay observation unit. ED has approximately 60,000 presentations per year.

The General Medicine Department

The Department of General Medicine is the main inpatient medical unit at the Hospital. On average, we admit 15-20 patients over a 24-hour cycle. As well as those admissions, there are admissions to subspecialty medicine teams, averaging a total of 20-25 admissions of Medical patients per day. The General Medicine Units are planned to be based on one ward in the new K-block in 2020, which is currently under development. Each team is supported by Allied Health specialists.

Presently the Department of General Medicine has 13 Staff Specialists, mostly in part-time roles. The teams are organised into 4 Medical Units; each unit has its own Basic Training Registrar and Intern, and 2-3 consultants. There are now 8 Advanced Training positions in General Medicine, rotating through General Medicine and other sub-specialty positions such as stroke, respiratory medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology and nephrology.

The present model of care is one of admission by the on-call units (generally acutely unwell patients through the Emergency Department) and follow up of those patients during their stay within the hospital. We are developing models of care to ensure an even distribution of patients within the teams to share workload, facilitate patient flow out of the ED, and ensure excellence in patient-centred care.

The Location:
It is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. With a population of approximately 240,000, it offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby.

Located at the entrance to the Derwent River, its well-preserved surrounding bushland reaches close to the city centre and beaches line the shores of the river and estuary beyond.

With its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences, the city has something for everyone.

Award-winning restaurants offer fine dining experiences using the best Tasmanian produce recognised by the world's best chefs, while on the waterfront punts and fishmongers sell the freshest seafood straight from the Southern Ocean.

Enjoy the contrast of elegant heritage sandstone alongside modern architecture. Explore Salamanca Place, a short walk from the waterfront, with its galleries, theatres, craft shops and restaurants in 1830s Georgian warehouses and on Saturdays enjoy the food and entertainment of Salamanca Market, Australia's best outdoor market.

Take a walk along the iconic waterfront, explore the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or take a ferry up river to MONA for an out-of-this-world modern art experience.

It's easy to fall for the many charms of this quietly buzzing city that hits fever pitch at festival time.

It is also close to many of southern Tasmania's best travel experiences, from historic Port Arthur and the rugged Tasman Peninsula to Bruny Island, the Huon and Derwent Valleys and Mount Field National Park.
