Spanning acute, subacute and community services, allied health professionals work together to support patients and consumers to achieve excellence in care. We are actively involved in professional development, quality improvement and research.

As a teaching hospital, we provide undergraduate student placements across all allied health professions.

We have innovative career opportunities at the RMH. Some of our new roles include COVID community navigators, flying squad (complex discharge planning), LGBTIQA+ patient liaison and disability liaison officers.

Graduate programs

We offer 12 month graduate roles for allied health professionals who are new to the workforce. These roles are fixed term to support a dedicated graduate learning and development experience. Many of our graduates are successful in securing ongoing employment at the RMH. These roles are typically advertised from September or October each year, although you may see these opportunities throughout the year.


Allied health vacancies are first advertised for internal applicants only. External advertising will occur as necessary. We recommend that you register on our recruitment system so you can receive alerts for your profession or area of interest.
