Canberra Hospital, Canberra, ACT


The IBD Service at Canberra Health Services is one of the largest in Australia with three IBD consultants and 2.3 full-time equivalent registered nurses who manage over 450 patients on biological agents and an additional 1500 on standard therapies.

The outpatient clinics are being expanded into a multidisciplinary IBD service at which patients will have access to colorectal surgical, dietetic, and psychological advice when necessary. There are several clinical trials of new therapeutic agents accessible to patients. The IBD Service also participates in various national research consortia.

This is an excellent opportunity for a gastroenterologist with IBD experience. The successful candidate will be well supported in the IBD clinic by two other IBD consultants, an advanced trainee, and two IBD clinical nurse specialists. In addition, there is funding available for an IBD fellow. The IBD service encompasses a weekly IBD meeting, a monthly surgical multi-disciplinary meeting and running IBD clinical trials and research.

In addition to IBD, the GEHU at Canberra hospital offers a broad range of services including advanced endoscopic, pancreato-biliary and hepatology services.
