About us

As Victoria’s largest and arguably most complex health service, Monash Health plays a key role in improving the health of our community, providing healthcare to one quarter of Melbourne’s population, across the entire life-span from newborn and children, to adults, the elderly, their families and carers.

Monash Simulation delivers a wide range of simulation for health professionals at all levels (in-situ and Centre- based courses), designed to enhance individuals’ skills, interprofessional teamwork and the translation of these into optimal patient care. The Centre, located in Moorabbin, has recently been extensively renovated and now includes two high fidelity simulation suites, as well as multiple debriefing and skills rooms and has the capacity to run high level complex interprofessional or simulation education courses.

Following an organisational restructure, we are now rebuilding our service to better support our medical, nursing and allied health cohorts and ensure we deliver best practice training and development to our frontline clinical teams.  As part of our journey, we’re now looking for a passionate and committed professional to assist our pursuit of excellence in the simulation field.  We envisage appointing this role at around four days per week, enabling you to maintain your clinical skills through working in another suitable role. 

About the role

This is a unique opportunity to assist the Director in the design and development of Monash Simulation by building collaborative partnerships with clinical and education teams focused on patient and service outcomes. The simulation service will utilise the full range of simulation modalities, and be leveraged by fostering strong teaching and research partnerships with other simulation centres and universities.

You will be managing operations for the simulation service, your team of dynamic nursing educators and administration staff, assisting with the design and provision of courses. The role includes training and building the capacity of others to provide high quality centre-based and in-situ simulation across the Monash Health network.

We are also currently advertising for the role of Monash Simulation Instructor (Nursing/Midwifery).  If you are interested in being considered for that role as well as the Instructor role, please specify this in your cover letter.  A separate application is not required.

  • Previous experience in quality improvement or patient safety initiatives, critical care nursing and simulation research are highly desirable but not mandatory for the role.

More important is your enthusiastic and energetic approach, and your natural ability to think creatively and work collaboratively with others to find innovative solutions.
