We currently care for patients across the central North Island as a Regional Urology Service. Our catchment area covers the population centres of Whanganui, Horowhenua, Rangitikei, Horowhenua, Wairarapa, and Manawatu Districts. Our hospital also anchors the Regional Cancer Treatment Service with medical oncology and radiation oncology. Treating cancer will be a sizeable part of your practice.

Call covers a week at a time and is not onerous or intrusive.

In addition to all the above, we also offer:

  • Six weeks annual leave per annum.
  • 10 paid days per annum available for continued medical education including a generous allowance towards costs of course and travel, each year.
  • Generous relocation packages for national and international candidates with dedicated support throughout your move.

Living in Palmerston North is easy; you can pause and slow down your hectic pace. The town layout means nothing is more than a 10-minute drive (or bike) away. With our inland location, everything on the central and lower North Island is just a short trip away – beaches close by, ski fields and wineries just up the road, stunning scenery with loads of hiking tracks including Te Arapuke Mountain bike track. Our region also offers excellent schools and a local university. The energy is building in Palmy, so if you haven’t visited in a while, you’ll find it a pleasantly different town.
