Trainees have the opportunity to work closely with consultants in small teams and to see a range of patient conditions that differ from those treated in public hospitals. A large proportion of our positions are shared with a public hospital, for example, The Alfred. Trainees usually spend six months at Cabrini for the private hospital experience and then rotate to the partner hospital to experience public hospital systems. Trainees are employed by the public hospital year-round to ensure continued entitlement to benefits.
Cabrini is a large, private health provider with more than 800 beds across five campuses, and more than 82,000 episodes of inpatient care each year. There are 1600 specialist doctors who practise here in a wide range of specialty areas, including paediatrics, cardiology, rehabilitation, psycho-oncology, endocrinology, anaesthetics, gastroenterology, gynaecology, nephrology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, rheumatology, urology and more.
We provide a comprehensive range of high-quality acute, subacute, palliative care, primary care, diagnostic and community-based health services across south east Melbourne. Our locations include our two acute hospitals in Malvern and Brighton and Australia’s first private, women’s-only mental health hospital in Elsternwick.
