The location

“Perhaps it is fishing, golf, a cycle ride, surfing, skiing or putting your feet up with a good book that is your thing?  Whatever you fancy you can do more of it here………

Located in the lower South Island, the Southern district offers a wide range of recreational activities. It is home to two of New Zealand's national parks offering superb hiking and scenery, whilst internationally acclaimed fishing and a wide range of other outdoor pursuits are also available. Five top New Zealand snowboarding/skiing destinations are also within the region.

Recognised as an ideal place to raise a family, Invercargill is a modern city offering access to outstanding leisure pursuits and a caring, safe community. The city also has superb facilities such as the brand new sports stadium and cycling velodrome, excellent schools, a local tertiary provider where free fees exist and the University of Otago in Dunedin.

 “Friendly, welcoming and fulfilling work environment.  Wonderful climate, lovely city, quiet relaxed lifestyle”


As part of a small but dedicated team, you'll have excellent access to the General Surgery and Urology Consultants and unrivalled opportunities to experience many of the varied surgical presentations to the hospital.  In return we offer you the opportunity to learn, up close, the skills needed to improve your ability to enter Surgical Education Training. 

You won't find yourself out in the cold at Southland Hospital - with our close-knit small team structure, our RMO's spend more time with Senior staff than in the wilderness of a larger DHB.  When you're not skiing, snow boarding, tramping, surfing, kayaking or touring wineries, you'll be working out of our modern Hospital and with weekly teaching and Grand Rounds, journal clubs and regular RMO forums you'll be continually supported in your development.

As a minimum requirement, you will have a minimum of 2 years post graduate medical experience and a keen interest in providing acute and elective surgical care to our community.


Must be eligible for registration with the New Zealand Medical Council via the Competent Authority Pathway

Clean Medical Licence

2 years post graduate experience
