The opportunity

This region has a predominantly Māori population and as such is an opportunity to experience living and working in a community with strong cultural bonds to the local Iwi. The department sees around 25,000 presentations per annum of which around 22% are admitted to the hospital.  

This position is advertised as full time however there is flexibility to consider options around FTE.  The emergency department has been approved as a site for advanced trainee placement and as such we are looking forward to further developing education and training programmes for junior medical staff. 

The ideal candidate for this position will have the desire to work in a smaller secondary care hospital with the opportunity to practice alongside other specialist services such as general medicine, paediatrics, surgery and mental health to deliver innovative and responsive care to people presenting to the ED. A strong skill base in emergency medicine and urgent care, along with interests in particular subspecialty emergency care such as paediatrics would be beneficial. 

The location

Located in a friendly city on one of New Zealand’s most stunning coastlines. There are great restaurants and cafes, and a thriving arts and culture scene. The whole family will enjoy life in this gorgeous spot – a wonderful place for kids to grow up! The opportunities for an outdoors lifestyle and adventure sports are endless, with kayaking, surfing, hiking, golf, fishing and mountain biking on offer. Ski fields and national parks are an easy drive away, offering brilliant weekend getaway options

Essential criteria

To apply for this role you must have or be eligible for vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand and FACEM qualifications or equivalent
