General Practitioner – Cairns – Australia


Cairns lies in the far north of Queensland; this is where the rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef. Known for its beach resorts and a base for exploring the Reef. Close by is the Daintree National Park, the oldest rainforest in the world. The practice is just a 30-minute commute from the northern beaches of this city. The climate of northern Queensland is tropical with humid summers and milder temperatures in winter. Cairns offers all the benefits of a larger city and has access to an international airport, further private schooling and various shopping facilities.

The position is offered by a mixed billing practice, here a combination of bulk billing and private billing is provided to their patients. Among others, all children and pensioners are bulk billed and others are privately billed. Local residents receive a discount. Furthermore the income potential of the physicians working at this practice is high and dependent on the physician’s week management. Also the practice is closed daily for an hour for lunch.


On behalf of this general practice in Australia we are looking for a general practitioner for a full-time. The appointment is for a minimum of one year but the employer is open to negotiating a more permanent appointment including a possible partnership.

You will strengthen an enthusiastic team consisting of several general practitioners and nurses. This is a GP owned group with 7 GPs and 2 Registrars. The position has become available because one of the physicians on the team is taking a career break. Hours are flexible, most GPs work 4 days per week, Monday to Friday and there is a share in the Saturday am shift 1:6. There is no on call service locally. Calls are primarily telephone triaged and doctors are very rarely called out.

Aside from various attractive employment conditions the employer offers flexible hours and no cap on annual leave.
