The Location

Situated right on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, Hamilton is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing areas. It’s the 4th largest city in NZ and it continues to expand.

Key to this growth is its central location, easy access to other parts of the country and its affordability.

Auckland is only a 90 minute drive north and Tauranga is just over an 1hr to the east.  The west coast and east coast beaches are within easy reach at weekends from Mount Maunganui, Papamoa, Ohiwa, Ohope, Raglan and of course, the stunning Coromandel Peninsula. And don't forget the 18 tranquil lakes towards Rotorua, also just 1hr 25mins away. 

A number of world-renowned stud farms producing elite thoroughbred racehorses are located in the Waikato region. As are premier ski fields during the ski season at Turangi and Whakapapa. Nearby Lake Karapiro hosts national rowing and dragonboat regattas each summer. The FMG Stadium Waikato seats 25,000 and hosts a range of top quality sports from rugby league, rugby sevens and football. 

 

  • Enjoy an urban or semi-rural lifestyle - whatever suits your family best
  • Buoyant property market and a wide range of schools to choose from
  • University city, diverse mix of arts and culture, cafes, bars and restaurants

Requirements for this role

Ideally you will hold FRANZCR and full Vocational registration with Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ).

Alternatively, if not NZ trained or based, you will hold equivalent specialist qualifications from either UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada or USA that will enable Provisional Vocational (long term) registration or Locum Tenens (short term up to 12 months) registration. These are the specialist pathways for medical registration in NZ for Radiologists and we can assist with the medical registration and work visa applications, if you are successfully appointed.

A further registration pathway is also possible if you are an overseas trained Radiologist with at least 33 months (out of the last 48 months) specialist/ consultant level experience from a country considered to have a comparable health system by The Medical Council of New Zealand. 

Primary Source Verification using EPIC

From 1st November 2017, all relevant qualifications must now be verified by ECFMG using the EPIC system on behalf of the Medical Council of New Zealand.  If you are committed to working in New Zealand, we recommend starting this process off as soon as possible if you hold qualifications from outside NZ. Candidates can log on to EPIC and complete this step online very easily. EPIC verifies your identity and your qualifications.
