Fixed term Rural Hospital Medicine Specialist

Dates: 17 June - 1 November 2019

Rates: Negotiable based on experience and qualifications

The Position
If you are keen to hit the slopes and enjoy the spectacular scenery it has to offer, you will want to put your hand up for this great opportunity to join in a six month Medical Officer position available from mid-June 2019 to 1 November 2019. This vacancy is suitable for senior registrars on the Rural Hospital Medicine Training Programme.

In this role you will mainly work in the Emergency Department, where we see around 11,500 new attendances per year. Here you'll be part of a team of 11 rural hospital doctors and medical officers. You will need to be a confident practitioner as your on-call backup may be up to 30 minutes away, though there is easy access to phone advice. An on call room is provided.

You should have sound ED skills and experience, and ideally also some exposure to ICU/Anaesthetics. Any time spent in orthopaedics, general medicine and paediatrics will be beneficial. You will need to have previously worked as a solo medical practitioner, or be ready to do so.

The Location
Located in a charming rural Otago town, within easy travelling distance of such natural wonderlands as Fiordland, the Catlins, Central Otago and the lake district. A great base from which to explore, you'll be in the Otago wine region within the hour! Locally the options for sports, hunting, trout and salmon fishing and hiking are endless. There are also golf courses on the doorstep

Essential Criteria:
The successful applicant must hold or be able to gain registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
