The University of Wollongong's Graduate School of Medicine (GSM) and NSW Health's Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) have forged a strong relationship committed to improving the health outcomes of our community and regional Australians by bringing together research, teaching and clinical practice. We have a strong commitment to developing the next generation of medical professionals that are well equipped to negotiate the challenges of medical practice, particularly in regional, rural and remote locations.
As Professor of Paediatrics you will be the Academic Leader for Paediatrics within the GSM and ISLHD. You will work across both the hospital and university environments to lead the development of an Academic Paediatrics Unit, ensure that the paediatrics components of the GSM's degree offerings are of high quality and lead paediatrics research initiatives. This is your opportunity to make a difference in our community, lead new research and teaching initiatives and contribute to the education of the next generation of medical professionals. This position has been made possible by the generous support of the community, local business and clubs to undertake key paediatric health research. This position has been classified as “child related employment”.
