About the Health Products Regulation Group

Regulation that protects and enhances the health and safety of the community is a major component of a high quality health system. The Health Products Regulation Group supports timely access to products that will help achieve better health and wellbeing, whilst checking that these products do not themselves put Australians' health and safety at risk. We achieve this through regulation of therapeutic goods and certain controlled drugs and drug substances. This applies to all such goods exported, imported, supplied and manufactured in Australia.


The Opportunity

MO3 Medical Advisers – (several positions) (Ongoing, Non-ongoing, Fulltime, Part-Time)

MO3 Medical Advisers provide leadership and strategic level expertise in the assessment of clinical evidence, clinical trial and registry data, and safety information, to provide timely and high quality clinical advice in regard to pre and post-market review of medical devices.


Positions available

The Medical Devices Authorisation Branch contributes to the vision of the Health Products Regulation Group (HPRG) and wider Department ‘Better health and wellbeing for all Australian’s through regulatory excellence’. We apply a risk-based approach to the assessment and approval of medical devices for supply in Australia to ensure these devices meet Australian regulatory requirements. The assessment of the quality, safety and performance of medical devices including in vitro medical devices protects the health and safety of the Australian consumers.
