The words 'flexible and supportive work environment' and 'opportunities to learn and progress' sum up Dr Ade Freeman’s experience at Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) since he started 4 years ago.

Ade, a registrar in the FSH Nephrology and Renal Transplant Unit, said doctors seeking a new job opportunity should consider Fiona Stanley Fremantle Hospitals Group (FSFHG).

“The lure of working at a new tertiary hospital was certainly appealing to me,” Ade said.

“During my time at FSH, I’ve had the opportunity to work with and alongside exceptional doctors who look out for each other. I’ve developed long-standing friendships and have become better at what I do.”

“Continued education is important to me, and the teaching and education program on offer at FSFHG, in my opinion, is best in the state.”

Maintaining a work-life balance can be difficult for most people, none more so than for doctors, however FSFHG Workforce Manager Jeff McDonald said flexible work-arrangements were available.

“More than 160 junior medical officers were employed part-time across 25 specialties this year,” Jeff said.

“We implement various part-time work arrangements and have accommodated special rostering requests for family, study and religious reasons.”

“We also understand doctors may want to balance work with research commitments, or can only work in the evenings or weekends, all of which we try to accommodate.”

FSFHG is currently recruiting service medical registrars.  For more information, please contact Jeff McDonald on 6152 2222 or email
