Radiation Oncologist – Icon Cancer Centre, Warrnambool
Icon Cancer Centre is excited to invite applications from suitably qualified Radiation Oncologists to join our Victorian team in Warrnambool. This is a great opportunity to establish a rewarding career with Australia’s largest dedicated cancer care provider at a time of sustained and continued growth.
About the Role:
Reporting to the Director of Radiation Oncology, supported by Icon’s extensive doctor network, and working closely with local clinical/operational teams, the primary purpose of this role is to provide high-quality, evidence-based Radiation Oncology services (consultation, treatment, and all associated clinical care) to Icon Cancer Centre patients.
Located within the South West Regional Cancer Centre (SWRCC), Icon Warrnambool proudly provides radiation oncology services for residents of South West Victoria and border cities in South Australia. SWRCC, which opened in 2016 after the local community raised more than $5M in under 12 months and lobbied both State and Commonwealth Government for an integrated cancer facility, is also home to a Medical Oncology and Haematology service alongside clinical trial support, breast and prostate cancer nurses, and a cancer link nurse. It is a well-integrated, dynamic service with a strong focus on high quality, patient-centric care, and ongoing support through an established survivorship program. It is highly regarded and a source of pride within the community.
Icon Warrnambool cares for a broad mix of patients and presentations with the latest radiotherapy techniques and equipment as standard including VMAT, DIBH, IGRT and stereotactic capabilities. There are established local multidisciplinary team meetings as well as robust, doctor-led governance structures and close links to all other Icon sites therefore colleagues, support, and collaboration are readily available. We are part of an extensive network of cancer centres throughout the country and draw on the experience, knowledge, and support of this large network of clinicians to offer quality local treatment.
About the Person We Will Hire:
Icon is committed to providing the highest-level cancer services to our patients and referrers. We are looking for a highly motivated radiation oncologist to uphold and deliver that commitment.
The successful candidate will be someone who thrives in a close-knit multidisciplinary environment, working effectively with all internal and external stakeholders to ensure our patients receive exemplary care at all points throughout their experience with Icon.
This role is perfect for a clinician seeking to maintain a well-rounded, generalist skillset and care for a variety of patient presentations rather than being limited to single tumour streams. They will recognise this as an opportunity to secure a long-lasting and rewarding career in a beautiful region, or the perfect way to join and establish themselves within a leading cancer care provider with endless opportunities.
