About the Job

General Medicine Physician


  • Join us as we change the future of healthcare in Southern NZ (Permanent 1.0 FTE)
  • Close knit, supportive team
  • Negotiable start date

About the role
We are looking for a General Medicine Physician, with or without subspecialty interest or qualification, who wishes to work in a young and dynamic department of predominantly New Zealand trained Physicians. Our service in Southland is a 38 bed medical ward and 6 bed critical care unit, covering the Southland, Queenstown and Te Anau regions. Sub-speciality support is provided predominantly by Dunedin, however we have a number of dual trained Physicians on site who work in both inpatient medicine and outpatient specialties.

You would join a team of 7 sharing equally in the acute roster, providing both inpatient and outpatient services.  We are an accredited site for Basic and Advanced Physician training and provide an excellent training experience here in General Medicine. For physicians who are dual trained there is opportunity to accommodate and negotiate ongoing sub-speciality practice and we would be open to further discussions involving any specialty alongside Internal Medicine. We have a strong sense of team work here and have systems in place to ensure the inpatient workload is very manageable, especially in comparison to larger centres around New Zealand. The work life balance here is truly exceptional.

About you
To be considered for this role you will need to be FRACP (or equivalent) holding, or be eligible to hold, a vocational registration with Medical Council of NZ. If you are an international candidate you can be considered for this role under the condition, you are eligible for vocational registration with the MCNZ. We will also consider candidates who are close to obtaining their General Medicine fellowship.
