Gynaecologist – Muri – Switzerland


The Freiamt region connects Mittelland with central Switzerland. The village of Muri, with approximately 7500 inhabitants, is located in the canton Aargau, close to Zurich (one a half hour drive) and Luzern. The name of the canton originates from the beautiful river Aare. The canton is characterized by mediaeval centres, related museums and numerous castles. In addition, there are famous thermal baths scattered through the canton. For years, the canton has a stable and strong economy due to the flourishing agriculture. Due to the relatively flat, but mildly hilly landscape, there is an infinite amount of beautiful hiking routes in the area.

The hospital offers care to an area of 100 000 inhabitants. There are 4 operating theatres and an intensive care unit. Annually, care is given to around 8000 inpatients and 40 000 outpatients. The Gynaecology department takes care of around 3000 patients and guides 600 births in 3 delivery rooms per year. The surgical treatment includes not only the classis gynaecological interventions, but also tumour surgery and incontinence therapy. In addition, interdisciplinary pelvic floor management is offered. The department is an important cooperation partner of a centre hospital, which makes it part of a certified breast centre with interventional diagnostics and adjuvant chemotherapy.


On behalf of the above-mentioned hospital, we are looking for a motivated gynaecologist as (subhead) of the department for a fulltime (0,8-1,0 fte) position. The hospital is looking for a gynaecologist with focus on operative gynaecology and obstetrics with several years of experience as a senior consultant. The team prefers an empathic personality who is consensus-oriented and assertive. Ideally, you will have an interest in management and business administration.
Your tasks will include performing your own gynaecological-obstetrical consultation and regular participation in the surgical program. Ideally, you will have an operational specialty that extends the existing spectrum of care. Together with the consultants and the assistant-doctors, you will care for the inpatients and also perform teaching tasks in this clinical setting. Together with the medical team, you will ensure the permanent obstetric on-call service. You will support the chief physician in organizing and managing the clinic and actively support its further development. Within the entire hospital, you will actively participate in various interprofessional projects and committees and maintain collegial contact with the referrers.
You can expect a broad variety of activities within a modern and growing hospital with a wide range of services. The team is characterized by good cooperation with different specialities and a strong team spirit.

Attractive employment conditions are offered. Good command of the German and English language is required to register and practice in Switzerland. Although C1 command is preferred in your clinical role, a B2-level suffices for registration. MMedical can help you select the right language training centre and will help you with the federal and cantonal professional registration.
