House Officer and Registrar - Junior Doctor Training and Service Roles
Orthopaedic Surgery house officer and registrar positions are highly sought after and competition is tough. Training positions are accredited for postgraduate specialist training by the Royal College or organisation responsible for overseeing training and examniations in orthopaedic surgery in the relevant country. Each job will be accredited for a specified period of time and level of training (rural/ urban/junior/ advanced) and will have structured teaching and supervision. You should register with the appropriate organisation to ensure your training is recognised towards the specialist training and examniations.
Training positions, titled house officer and registrar, are available in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland and Singapore.
Service positions are not approved for postgraduate specialist training but usually provide excellent clinical experience for physicians looking to acquire some skills in a new speciality and they are often an easier means of entry to a country.

Broome Kimberley WA
Beginning life as a pearling town in the 1880s, Broome was a wild frontier, attracting workers from Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Japan and Europe. Along with strong Indigenous cultures, these influences are all here today, giving Broome a vibe unlike anywhere else.
Red dirt sits beside aqua ocean, pearl boutiques rub shoulders with laid-back breweries, and activities range from world-class diving to unhurried camel-rides.
Broome has a population of 20,000 which trebles during the holiday season, due to the tropical climate and white sandy beaches which look out onto the Indian Ocean.
This is a modestly sized hospital with 50 beds, including six nursing home beds, offering a range of services, including Hyparbaric medicine and a medical library.
It caters for medical, surgical, paediatric and maternity care and has a busy emergency service.
The hospital is on the same site as The Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service (BRAMS) practice, which incorporates a four-doctor primary care facility and a new 10 station haemodialysis unit, and The Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services Council (KAMSC), which provides a teaching campus for Aboriginal health workers and medical students and support for Aboriginal health services throughout the Kimberley.
Apart from the local specialists (Broome and Derby), a full range of specialists visit regularly while visiting other towns and communities within the Kimberley.
Various orthopaedic surgery teams visit the region for a total of 16 weeks a year. Ophthalmologists, an ear, nose and throat surgeon, a dermatologist and cardiologists visit several times a year to work in the public system.
The hospital works in association with The Rural Clinical School of Western Australia and regularly hosts visiting specialists who work all over the Kimberley region (in addition to local specialists who work between Broome and Derby).
