The Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) is the tertiary referral hospital for Tasmania, and the principal teaching hospital for the University of Tasmania Medical School. The Hospital provides most specialist medical services for the state, and is conveniently located in the central city, with easy access to all services and Hobart’s waterfront and inner suburbs.
The Department of Neurology at RHH is fully accredited for neurology training, and provides management of 16-20 neurology and stroke inpatients, plus serves a wide range of subspecialty clinics and neurophysiology services. We provide a rewarding and supportive training environment, with regular protected teaching sessions and financially supported professional development. Further information on the department is available at https://www.anzan.org.au/neurologytraining/trainingpositions_displayhospitaldetails.asp?HospitalID=23.
Note that prospective first and second year core advanced trainees in neurology need to apply for two RHH positions through the match process co-ordinated by ANZAN – see https://www.anzan.org.au/neurologytraining/recruitmentoftrainees.asp.

These positions are well funded by the Commonwealth STP program and are for registrars completing physician training with the RACP in Australia and therefore are not available to overseas applicants seeking a single year of practice in Australia.
