About the Roles

This position requires work in Monash Health Emergency Departments (EDs), along with the opportunity to work in Advanced Practice Screening Clinics. Work collaboratively with Senior Medical staff including ED Consultants, Orthopaedic Registrars/Consultants, and Neurosurgery Consultants to ensure the best management for Monash Health patients.
All AMP staff work in at least two of our three locations with Emergency departments (Casey Hospital, Dandenong Hospital and Clayton – Monash Medical Centre/Monash Childrenâ€™s Hospital). In addition to those sites, AMP Screening clinics are also conducted at Moorabbin Hospital (East Bentleigh).
AMP Emergency Department shifts are from 930-1800, except Clayton (Monash Medical Centre/Monash Childrenâ€™s Hospital) weekend shifts which are from 1100-1900.

Experience in the ED setting and a clear understanding of the limits of the scope of practice for Advanced Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are required for this position.
