General Medicine Physician

Southland Hospital, New Zealand

Southland Hospital is one of New Zealand’s most modern, having been rebuilt in 2004. A secondary level facility, you’ll find we have first class facilities, you’ll have first rate peer support and a breadth of caseload you’ll find stimulating. Our team of six physicians truly do deal with it all – sharing equally in an acute roster, providing both inpatient and outpatient services and, of course, pursuing their specialty interest. You’ll be well supported by Registrars and House Officers and participate in a 1:6 on-call roster.

Invercargill? It’s in the south of New Zealand’s South Island, surrounded by national parks. It’s not a big city and the pace of life and lack of big city pressures reflect it. We’ve an abundance of amenities, educational (primary through tertiary) facilities, arts scene and cultural life. We have space to burn, fresh air to share, and a sense of community many lament having lost. Up the road we’ve Queenstown and Central Otago – summer and winter playgrounds whatever your passion.

You’ll need to have completed your specialist training and be eligible for vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. Ideally, you will have an interest in developing teaching opportunities, something our links to the University of Otago and Dunedin School of Medicine encourage. The position offers an attractive remuneration package, relocation assistance and CME allowance.
