A career in Health
South Australia has one of the world's best and fairest health-care systems, with first-class professionals and medical facilities, including the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, providing the most complex clinical care to an estimated 85,000 inpatients and 400,000 outpatients each year.
Those working in the health industry are based in metropolitan and regional South Australia, in public and private hospitals and medical practices. Opportunities to build skills in the industry are second to none; with world-class, well-connected and technologically advanced public teaching hospitals, and a record government investment in health spending to fix ramping, ease pressure on hospital emergency departments and boost resources.
Treating professionals work in collaboration with research and treatment centres, including those based at Adelaide BioMed City, one of the largest medical precincts in the Southern Hemisphere.
The committed professionals who maintain this high standard of care include qualified medical practitioners and support staff, including registered and enrolled nurses, personal care workers and allied health professionals (such as psychologists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists).
Examples of available roles in health include:
- Medical Practitioners
- Medical Radiation Practitioners
- Registered or Enrolled Nurse
- Mental Health Support Counsellors
- Nursing Support / Personal Care Workers
- Pharmaceutical Specialist
- Occupational Therapist
