We are seeking an enthusiastic Consultant Paediatrician committed to team-based patient-centred care to join a multidisciplinary paediatric unit at Waikato hospital.
Waikato District Health Board provides care to 400,000 people, including a growing population of 82,000 children under the age of 15. Their paediatric medical team of 15 Paediatricians and 18 basic & advanced trainees is the foundation of a multidisciplinary paediatric unit including a child development and protection service, paediatric surgery and a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit.
Waikato has an excellent reputation in teaching and training, both of undergraduate medical students and paediatric trainees. Those with research interests enjoy on campus support from the University of Auckland’s Waikato Clinical School & the DHB’s Clinical Audit Support Unit.
As one of New Zealand’s fastest growing areas, key to this growth is its central location and easy access to other parts of the country. Auckland City is only a 90 minute drive away and both the west coast and east coast beaches are within easy reach, including Mount Maunganui (voted New Zealand’s best beach in 2017), the stunning Coromandel Peninsula, and Raglan Beach, with its rugged coastline and some of the best surf breaks NZ has to offer.
As a university city, there is a diverse mix of arts and culture, as well as an array of sporting activities. The population (Hamilton city 200,000, Waikato region 390,000) is diverse, with many cultures represented and celebrated here. Events and festivals throughout the year include Diwali, Matariki (Maori New Year), Garden shows, regular Farmers Markets, Theatre shows and music festivals, major sporting events and tournaments.
There is an array of restaurants and cafes featuring locally sourced products, a vibrant nightlife, vineyards, and wide open spaces for you to enjoy the great outdoors. Housing is affordable whether you like the idea of an urban apartment, a townhouse with a garden, or a sprawling lifestyle block just outside of the city. There is also a wide variety of schooling options to suit your family needs.
