Become a Retrieval Registrar with LifeFlight and develop your knowledge and skills through challenging, varied work across Australia and around the world. You will receive clinical supervision and ongoing education along with an attractive salary. You will work in a dynamic environment that allows you to develop a broad range of skills in retrieval medicine, predominantly in rotary-wing aircraft, and pre-hospital care. Senior Registrar positions recognise those medical officers who may hold a Specialist Qualification outside Australia in a relevant field; of a comparable country and meet the mandatory criteria for a Retrieval Consultant apart from holding Specialist Registration with the Medical Board of Australia and/or having relevant Pre-Hospital Retrieval Medicine experience. Medical officers who hold Specialist Registration within Australian, but do not have relevant Pre-Hospital Retrieval Medicine experience would also be considered a Senior Registrar
Please note – there is some flexibility around these, but this is the simplest way to show the minimum clinical requirements. Flexibility comes in with the understanding that College training programs do differ and rotations in all of these fields are not mandatory to finish your critical care specialty. This is why it is important to gain time in these areas as a resident or even better a PHO and to keep a logbook.
Rural and remote rotations help with counting towards ED experience if you fall short and in gaining the ability to demonstrate alternative, equivalent experience in the management of undifferentiated patients. It is important to keep a logbook of your Anaesthetic procedures (whether it be during time in an Emergency Department and/or Anaesthetic Department) and will be requested if you are not able to gain a full 6 months in Anaesthetics. There are written guidelines outlining this information in much greater detail and can be given to you should wish to read it thoroughly.
Also remember, if you are unable to commit to this exact formula during your training years, you are always welcome to apply to LRM and this is simply counted as extra time and will not affect gaining your Fellowship.
