Senior Medical Officer, Persistent Pain Management Service

Are you passionate about outcomes for children and young people across Queensland?

We're committed to providing life-changing healthcare for children and young people for a healthier tomorrow.

About the Queensland Children's Hospital 

The Queensland Children's Hospital (QCH) (formerly The Lady Cilento Children's Hospital), which opened on 29 November 2014, is Australia's largest and most advanced paediatric facility. Located in South Brisbane, the 359-bed hospital features more than 80,000 square meters of facilities spread across 12 levels.

As Queensland's single specialist paediatric facility, Children's Health Queensland's (CHQ) at the QCH is the hub of a dedicated network of paediatric services available at other Brisbane and Queensland hospitals. Expanding on CHQ's state-wide remit, the QCH also supports regional hospitals through telemedicine and outreach services. This means children and young people can access the services they need as close to home as possible.

The hospital precinct includes the Centre for Children's Health Research, the Children's Hospital Foundation, Ronald McDonald House South Brisbane (opened in 2016) and a new Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Service building.

Your Opportunity: 

The Queensland Interdisciplinary Paediatric Persistent Pain Service (QIPPPS) is the tertiary level paediatric persistent pain service for Queensland and Northern New South Wales. We are a progressive and dynamic team whose mission is to support children and young people with persistent pain, and their families, sustainably reconnect to life, one step at a time. We achieve this through exceptional teamwork and delivering evidence-based services that appreciate the complex dynamics between social, psychological and biomedical factors in persistent pain.

  • Partake in educational and research activities, including coordination of specialist training in the discipline of Pain Medicine.
  • Contribute to the innovation and advancement of the state-wide role of QIPPPS through engagement with regional and rural stakeholders and Queensland Health
  • There may be a negotiable opportunity to work within your primary specialty

  What CHQ HHS can offer

Apart from contributing to the development of Australia's best paediatric health service, you will also benefit from a competitive remuneration package and a working environment which embraces professional development, builds capabilities and supports staff to maximise their health and wellbeing. Additional benefits include:

  • Up to 12.75% employer superannuation contribution
  • 17.5% annual leave loading
  • Salary packaging
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Work/life balance, variety and flexibility
