Start Date: October 2019

Rates: Negotiable based on experience and qualifications

The Position
Our client is looking for an Orthopaedic Surgeon with a sub-speciality interest in Paediatric Orthopaedics to replace one of their long serving colleagues who is retiring. There may be a second vacancy for a surgeon with a spinal interest. The orthopaedic service is a generalist one with both elective and trauma work undertaken. In particular elective hip and knee replacement surgery and general orthopaedic trauma surgery (predominantly occurring on schedule day time acute trauma operating lists) will be an essential part of any orthopaedic SMO's workload as well as participation in the on call roster. They are keen to appoint a surgeon with a paediatric interest to work alongside their current paediatric surgeon who is planning to retire within the next few years. Other subspecialities they would consider favorably include spinal and foot/ankle surgery.

You would be one of 8 Orthopaedic Specialists. There is also a Medical Officer, 6 Registrars (two are on the national training program) and House Officers.

The Location
Located a couple hours from the ski fields of the North Island, wonderful wine country and the coolest little capital in the world, Palmerston North boasts fine dining, a world class university and a wonderful semi-rural lifestyle of its own.

Essential Criteria:
To apply for this position you must hold or be eligible for vocational scope of practice in Orthopaedics with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
