Who are we?

Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) is a unique cross-border public health service, Border Training Hub and the largest regional health care service between Sydney & Melbourne. We support an outer catchment population of 250,000 throughout North-East Victoria and Southern New South Wales, with a dedicated team of over 2,500 staff who are committed to meeting the needs of our diverse regional community. 

We are a dynamic organisation undergoing significant growth – with current plans for a new emergency department and a new Mental Health facility.

Where are we?

Albury and Wodonga are large regional centres located on either side of the picturesque Murray River, and a quick flight to Sydney and Melbourne.  

We are surrounded by a rural landscape which brings with it a range of tourist activities including the Rutherglen wine region, Milawa Fine Food trails and historic Beechworth. There is easy day access to the Falls Creek ski fields, Mount Hotham and Dinner Plain Resorts, not to mention the mountain biking trails of Mt Beauty, Yackandandah, Beechworth and Bright. For hiking enthusiasts we also sit close to Victoria’s High Country, the Kosciuszko Alpine Region and Buffalo National Park.  

This stunning region offers a very family friendly lifestyle along with an excellent nightlife and cultural activities. Affordable housing and a very reasonable cost of living, great schools and Universities, make this location one of the best regional cities in Australia.

What’s in it for you?

As a regional Emergency Department there are no concerns about deskilling in a specialty area. There is an extensive case mix with ample opportunities for maintaining procedural skills, such as, intubation, chest tubes, procedural sedations and joint relocations.  

We are supported by a wide range of subspecialties. Within medicine these include general medicine, respiratory, infectious diseases, cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, haematology and oncology. The surgical department includes general surgery, orthopaedics, ENT, maxillofacial and paediatric surgery. Other specialties include paediatrics, psychiatry, ophthalmology, obstetrics & gynaecology.  

Trainees are supported with close working relationships with intensive care and anaesthetics for critical presentations.   We have a relaxed and information packed 4 hour weekly teaching program.
