Requirements for this role
Ideally you will hold FRANZCR and full Vocational registration with Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ).
Alternatively, if not NZ trained or based, you will hold equivalent specialist qualifications from either UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada or USA that will enable Provisional Vocational (long term) registration or Locum Tenens (short term up to 12 months) registration. These are the specialist pathways for medical registration in NZ for Radiologists and we can assist with the medical registration and work visa applications, if you are successfully appointed.
A further registration pathway is also possible if you are an overseas trained Radiologist with at least 33 months (out of the last 48 months) specialist/ consultant level experience from a country considered to have a comparable health system by The Medical Council of New Zealand.
