As a Navy Doctor, you’ll practice medicine for a seagoing community, looking after the health and wellbeing of Navy personnel and supporting communities in need.
This is a challenging role where you’ll get to apply your practical and professional skill sets in a novel environment. You’ll be working in modern, fully-equipped facilities with trained Nursing, Administrative and Allied Health staff to support you both at sea and ashore.
Responsible for the general health of all personnel, you may become involved in specialist areas like Aviation Medicine, Underwater Medicine and Occupational Medicine.
Navy Doctors are also supported to specialise in other areas of medicine that are applicable to the Navy and the maritime environment, such as:
– Primary Health Care,
– Occupational Medicine,
– Public Health Medicine,
– Medial Administration.
There are opportunities for promotion and expansion of skills into health leadership and management, and appropriately experienced doctors can apply for other study streams.
Life in the Navy:
A career in the Navy is a challenging and highly rewarding working environment that comes with good work/life balance, competitive salary and skills for life. You can expect to feel a unique sense of accomplishment and pride from serving and protecting our country and helping to keep our vast coastlines safe.

Don’t worry, it’s not all life at sea—there’s more to the Navy than ships, submarines and helicopters. Some days, you might be exploring exciting new countries with your fellow crewmates. Other days, you could be stationed locally not too far from home.
Upon completion of your initial military and initial employment training, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary package from $98,669 including service and uniform allowances. You will also receive a Maritime Allowance when serving on ships.
In addition to your salary, you will receive generous superannuation, housing subsidies and free medical and dental care.
For this role, you must be registered as a Medical Practitioner with AHPRA or have qualifications that enable you to be registered. You need to be an Australian Citizen and able to meet the minimum security, medical and fitness requirements.
