Job description

Public Health Physician/Specialist

From within the Southern DHB we would like to work collaboratively with our partners to build healthy communities where we live, learn, work and play.

You will bring your experience and skills in building productive relationships with partners, understanding community’s needs, developing teams and innovative population-based programmes. You will be part of a team of senior colleagues working across a public health service which has identified the need to change the way it delivers public health approaches across the Southern district.

You will have an interest in quality improvement and evaluation and the ability to demonstrate the outcomes of our work. You will also have the opportunity to work with colleagues across the South Island with the South Island Public Health Partnership.

Medically qualified candidates will already have, or be able to achieve vocational registration in public health medicine with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

Expressions of interest from public health specialists who have completed an accredited vocational specialist training programme in public health and who have extensive experience in a senior designated public health officer role, will also be considered.

Closing Date: Sunday, 5 November 2017

Candidates who are not currently registered with the New Zealand Medical Council should be aware that from 1 November 2017 it will be the requirement of the NZ Medical Council that your qualifications are approved through EPIC. If you have a commitment to working in New Zealand it is highly recommended that you start this process as soon as possible so as to allow your subsequent registration to be undertaken in a timely fashion.

Candidates please note that screening of applications will be ongoing throughout this advertising period and our advertising will be removed from the Southern DHB website in the event of the role being filled.
