We are currently recruiting for a Consultant Haematologist to join a tertiary hospital in Dunedin. You will be based in the South Island of New Zealand famed for its outdoor lifestyle and work life balance.  

The role:

Dunedin Hospital is a 450 bed teaching hospital with strong links to Otago University Medical School. The Haematology Service provides a comprehensive tertiary level service to 300,000 people in the Southern DHB district. You will join a busy Oncology and Haematology team consisting of 5 Medical Oncologists, 4 Radiation Oncologists and 5 Haematologists. 

A key component of this role will be contributing to the team of clinicians overseeing the inpatient and outpatient management of our patients undergoing treatment for acute leukaemia, high grade lymphoma etc in addition to coagulation disorders.  Acting as a mentor and positive role model, you will contribute to teaching/training at undergraduates and postgraduate levels. As part of the single service multiple sites model, you must be able to work across our district from our hub in the city of Dunedin.

Bringing a successful background and experience in managing patients, you will have demonstrated a high standard of clinical practice in haematology. Flexible and adaptable to change, you will have experience in quality improvement activities with the ability to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary environment. Previous experience in clinical teaching will also hold you in good stead for this role. As the ideal candidate, you will have extensive work experience in clinical haematology with sub-speciality experience and research in aspects of general and malignant haematology including the treatment of coagulation disorders and thrombosis. However, we are certainly interested in candidates with other sub specialty experience.

The Location

Dunedin is the second largest city in the South Island and is one of four main urban centres of New Zealand. Known for its heritage and hospitality, Dunedin is an educated, enterprising, liberal, expressive and intriguing city with a real community spirit that embraces new ideas, new people, new enterprises and the more unique the better. With a proven record of educational and entrepreneurial excellence, it’s a city that fosters innovation and creativity, that revels in its underground arts, music and culture scene and flaunts its dramatic scenery.

There is plenty to enjoy in this city, from an excellent restaurant and café culture, a brilliant shopping and fashion industry, a vibrant arts and entertainment scene, a brand new and extremely impressive stadium which was purpose built for the Rugby World Cup, surf beaches and more. Add to this the spectacular scenery and diversity of leisure time opportunities available in the region, including mountain biking, hiking, wine country and lakes, plus the close proximity to Queenstown and Wanaka for skiing and adventure pursuits and you’ll realise why the region’s population is growing as more and more people choose to make it their home. It’s about deciding whether you want the ten-minute drive, the 15-minute bike ride or the half hour walk to work. It’s about deciding what to do on the weekend – surf, drink coffee, shop or hike in the mountains just down the road. Dunedin is a safe environment and a treasure trove of family fun!
