We have an opportunity for a Specialist Otolaryngologist with a special interest in Paediatric Airway to join the ENT department at the Waikato Hospital in Hamilton.

The Role

This is a full time position which you will start in mid-2018.  The primary role of this position is to manage paediatric patients. There is a 1:6 on call roster covering adult and paediatric otolaryngological presentations.  

There will be a focus on managing paediatric airway problems and otologic complaints as well as some elective general Otolaryngology. You may also be required to conduct outpatient clinics and possibly general otolaryngological surgical procedures at one or more of the peripheral hospitals within the Waikato DHB catchment area.

The Hospital

Waikato Hospital is a modern tertiary hospital.  The ENT Department participates in teaching of students of the University of Auckland Medical School. Training of pre-SET and SET Registrars is undertaken within the department.

The Waikato region is the fourth largest in area & population in New Zealand. The region boasts lush, green hills, with exceptional surfing opportunities on the west coast and glorious beaches on the east coast.  Surfers come from all over the world to experience nearby Manu Bay's famous left-hand break and the Raglan Surf Beach lifestyle is appealing to all. Ski fields, fresh and saltwater fishing grounds are easily reachable as are many beaches and holiday spots.  New Zealand’s largest city is an easy 90 minute freeway drive away making this a great location with many possibilities.

Why NZ?

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice for those who previously considered Australia as the most desirable location down under. Its rapid growth compared to other developed countries has recently been referred to as a “rock star economy” and it was voted the best place in world to raise a family by the 2014 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey, with the report describing it as “an ideal destination to raise active, outdoorsy and healthy children.”

Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy good working conditions and an excellent work life balance in New Zealand.

There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:
