Bermuda is an overseas British Bermuda in the North Atlantic Ocean and the capital city is Hamilton. Bermuda is self-governing, with its own constitution and government and a Parliament which makes local laws. The United Kingdom retains responsibility for defence and foreign relations. As of July 2018, its population is 71,176, the highest of the British overseas territories.

The islands have a subtropical climate and lies in the hurricane belt and thus can be prone to related severe weather; however, it is somewhat protected by a coral reef that surrounds the island and its position at the north of the belt, which limits the direction and severity of approaching storms.

The lifestyle in Bermuda is very much focused around water sports and activities and during the summer the days are long and you are never more than a couple 100 metres from the beach.  During the week, it’s also very common for people to leave work at around 5/6 pm, head to the beach and play volleyball or just tan and swim.

What are we looking for?

The hospital is ideally looking for a specialist with one or more of the below:

  • Certification by one of the medical specialty boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)
  • Specialist Certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
  • Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT or CCST) awarded by a competent authority of the UK or Ireland
  • Certification by one of the Royal Colleges in Australia
  • Specialist medical qualification from Western Europe
  • Fellowship of the Royal college of Physicians of South Africa
