General Practitioner

Wodonga, Australia

Posted 07/07/2024 Job Number 34373 Work type Permanent - Part Time Posting End Date 07/08/2024
You might think you already know a lot about Bupa. You’ll know we provide health insurance and aged care services across Australia and you’ve probably also seen our dental and optical clinics in your local shopping centres. But what you might not realise is that Bupa provides health services to 85,000 Defence Force members and their families across more than 50 locations in Australia.

About the Opportunity
Our GPs are civilians working from well-equipped multidisciplinary health centres on military bases across Australia, outside of the Medicare system. You’ll provide primary healthcare to serving Defence members including diagnosis and treatment of health conditions, and support in managing long-term healthcare. Our patients are engaged in their healthcare journey, with a strong focus on returning to full fitness and eager to explore preventative healthcare solutions.

You'll have a wide range of clinical practice, and while you’ll see clinical presentations and consults such as family planning, skin concerns, musculoskeletal issues and mental health, you’ll also have the opportunity to practice with a strong occ-health angle or specialise in exciting clinical disciplines like underwater and aviation medicine! 

We're looking for GPs right across Australia, with a focus on regional bases in Wagga Wagga and Albury-Wodonga. Significant relocation support is available. 

As a civilian GP in a military medical practice, you’ll:
  • Be supported while working within collaborative teams of medical, dental, and allied health services professionals.
  • Finish on time every shift with structured weekday opening hours
  • Spend more time on patient-centred care – no more 6-minute medicine!
  • Work from well-equipped facilities across 60+ locations around Australia.
  • Be part of a supportive team-focused culture with pride servicing the country, where your ideas and contributions are welcomed and valued.
  • Competitive salary – not pay per patient!
  • Employee benefits like subsidised health insurance, sick, annual and paternity leave and super – no more invoicing and tax hassles!
  • Real work/life balance in a serene regional location!
You’ll need to be:
  • An Australian citizen with the ability to apply for and maintain a Baseline Security Clearance
  • Comfortable with a lengthy recruitment process – Baseline security clearances can take up to 3 months to process and can feel very invasive.
  • Current unconditional and unrestricted registration as a Medical Practitioner with AHPRA 
  • A Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) or Vocational Registration.
  • A minimum of 2 years Full-Time experience in general practice setting within the last 5 years (or part-time equivalent)

Customer care during COVID

When COVID-19 hit we knew we had a responsibility to care for our customers by putting them at the heart of our decisions.

For this reason, in April 2020 our Health Insurance team invested over $50M and created the hardship team to support our customers when they most needed it.

Celebrate Wear it Purple Day and be the change

Wear it Purple was started to raise awareness of the discrimination faced by LGBTIQ+ youth, and the higher levels of suicide, depression and anxiety they experience as a result.
