About the Job


  • Dunedin
  • 1.0 FTE Permanent

Patient care is at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on ensuring the best possible patient experience as well as safe, high-quality care.

Currently we are seeking expressions of interest for a Medical Dermatologist to be based at Dunedin.

About us

We are seeking expressions of interest from a hospital-based dermatologist (acute conditions and outpatient care) whose value is centred on providing top-quality healthcare to our diverse patient population. In this role, you will be responsible for the dermatology service in a supportive and dynamic environment. In this role, you will be diagnosing and treating acute skin conditions, conducting skin examinations, performing minor surgical procedures, and providing expert advice on skincare.

The Dermatology service is currently provided by locum dermatologists and we are looking to establish a small department within Dunedin to look after the dermatological needs across the Southern Region of the South Island. The primary role would be to provide outpatient clinics for patients (including paediatric) referred into secondary care by their General Practitioner but you will also work closely with the specialist teams in Dunedin to provide advice, support, and treatment for acute complex skin conditions.

The dermatology service is provided out of our outpatient rooms and there are nursing staff who support the clinics. We have a phototherapy suite and have access to medical day-stay infusions. Clinics will need to be provided both in Dunedin as well as Invercargill and so some travel will be required for this role.

About you

The required skills and experience you will need to be considered for this role are:

  • training and postgraduate qualifications as a Medical Dermatologist
  • vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand as a Dermatologist or be eligible to apply for Provisional Vocational Registration as a Dermatologist.

Closing date: Friday, 26 January 2024

If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply online and attach an up to date copy of your CV for consideration.
