Job description

Palmy - perfect place for a Paediatrician

We are looking for a vibrant enthusiastic specialist to join our Child Health service from June 2018 in a part time capacity (0.5FTE).

This part time role will suit a fully fledged Paediatrician, or an advanced trainee looking for their future nest.

As a Paediatrician in Palmerston North you will share a 1:8 acute roster covering the broad gamut of acute paediatrics, including neonatal care, supported by dedicated Paediatric RMOs on site at all times. You will enjoy a range of outpatient clinics in the hospital and the community. We are expanding innovative models of care in partnership with nursing and general practice. Your special interests will complement those of the extant Paediatricians, or can be developed in tandem once you are here.
We enjoy excellent liaison with tertiary colleagues from Starship and Wellington, who all visit on a regular basis. We are proud of our reputation as a centre for trainees in Paediatrics, General Practice and Emergency Medicine.

If you are eager to map out your Paediatric future, with a flexible approach to sharing local duties, as well as regional responsibilities, then Palmerston North in the Manawatū may be perfect for you.

We wish to appoint a person who will fit in with our current team, who will help us as we evolve integration while maintaining the strengths of acute hospital care. If you would like to discuss your possible perfect place in Palmy please contact any of the delightful Paediatricians living here, or for more specific enquiries, ring Jeff Brown , Clinical Director, on 06 356 9169 or 021 476 120.
