The Royal Hobart Hospital

The integration of Tasmania's Southern Hospitals and Primary Health will give service providers the flexibility within the Southern region to ensure people have the best services we can provide as close as possible to where they live. The Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) is vital part of this health service.

The RHH is Tasmania's largest hospital and the major referral centre servicing a population of approximately 240,000 people. As the major centre of clinical teaching and research, it has a strong collaborative relationship with the University of Tasmania and other institutions. The RHH provides a comprehensive training program for junior doctors.

The RHH has a great team to support our junior medical staff. We provide excellent clinical experience, mentoring, education, training and support and have strong social networks. A major advantage of starting your career with us is the opportunity to develop extensive practical skills in a wide variety of specialities. A comprehensive range of general and specialty medical and surgical services are provided including many state-wide services such as cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, extensive burns treatment, hyperbaric medicine, neonatal & paediatric intensive care and high risk obstetrics. Critical care services are often the patients' first point of contact and are divided into intensive care services and emergency medicine services. As a major tertiary referral centre we have facilities and technology that are hard to match including MRI's, PET scanners, a Paediatric ICU, and a hyperbaric chamber. Interstate patients come to us for some services.

RHH has a fantastic residents quarters, staff gymnasium, and the "Feel better" health and wellbeing program which includes support for green initiatives.
