Frequently Asked Questions
Which medical specialists are required?
While Heart of Australia started predominantly as a cardiology service, we have since expanded our fields of speciality services to include Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Gynaecology, Neurology, Psychology and Respiratory & Sleep medicine.
We are always looking for opportunities to expand the specialties we offer to the bush, and deepen our pool of specialists available for clinics.
Will I be remunerated?
Heart of Australia Specialists are paid for their time.
By remunerating specialists appropriately, we can ensure the ongoing viability of our workforce and the program.
How many days are required?
You can offer to work as few as two days per quarter or more if possible.
Our specialists have a broad range of professional, personal and family responsibilities that can change throughout their time working for us. While we love it when specialists can have a significant amount of availability, the program does allow specialists to be able to scale up and down their work for us as their schedules and commitments change. We ask our specialists to make themselves available for at least 2 days per quarter, to conduct clinics with a level of regularity on both weekends and weekdays. With our routes expanding, now is the perfect time to contact us to find out more.
Who handles the travel arrangements?
Heart of Australia handles all the travel arrangements including the bookings of flights and accommodation as well as arranging transport between airports and the Heart Trucks.
Once you confirm your availability for a clinic our dedicated team of professionals will handle all the necessary paperwork, make contact with and book your patients in as well as arrange all the logistics so you can just pack a bag, grab your stethoscope and head to the airport. Everything else is sorted for you. Your clinic will be booked, set-up and ready for you when you arrive.
How often do you visit each town?
This varies from town to town based on the size of the population and the demand for services, but on average, we visit towns once a month as part of a fixed route.
Will I visit the same towns each rotation?
Typically yes. In order to offer continued patient care and follow ups our specialists do service the same towns when they conduct clinics for Heart of Australia. Our Specialists are warmly welcomed into the towns we service and become a very valued and appreciated service provider for the communities. Having specialists regularly visit towns is fabulous for patient continuity of care.
