“Best of both worlds”

There is a lot of talk about work/life balance but our Specialist Medical Staff in particular will tell you that, here in Timaru, you truly can have the best of both worlds.

You’ll find significant professional challenge in the breadth of the ‘generalist’ nature of our Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (O&G) Specialist role, covering both gynaecology and secondary obstetric care, although the position will still allow plenty of time to enjoy life outside of work too as the workload is far from onerous.

The pending departure of a team member presents a genuinely rare chance for an O&G Specialist to help make up our refreshed team of four. It’s what you might describe as a youthful and passionate team, proud of their profession and striving to be well recognized for the service they provide locally to the women of South Canterbury.

You’ll be working in a soon to be redeveloped, well-resourced facility, where the On-Call commitment is generally 1:4 during the week and weekends. 

While all applications from qualified O&G Specialists are welcome, ideally the team would like to add to our service an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has a significant level of clinical practice experience behind them.

Timaru is an easy place to live, family friendly and with easy access to an astounding array of outdoor activities – beaches, ski fields, lakes and mountains. When it comes to public amenities you are spoiled for choice with some first-rate cafes/restaurants, arts, tennis, aquatic, sporting venues all within the town boundary. Nothing is far away, traffic jams are basically unheard of, property is still relatively affordable and educational facilities and options superb.
