Job description

Invercargill
Permanent, full time

For some it’s the slow pace of life; for some it’s the quick access to Central Otago, the vineyards, the fishing, the skiing; for some it’s having an affordable life-style block but only being minutes from town; and for some it’s just a great place to bring up a family. What will be your reason be to join us in Spring 2019?

As a valued member of our Surgical Services, you will join us as an experienced Consultant ENT Surgeon in Southland Hospital. This is one of the newest hospitals in the South Island of New Zealand, providing modern and easily accessible facilities for both staff and patients. Southland Hospital is the base hospital for a wide geographical area, creating enormous scope for variety in the work of a talented professional like you. There's no better place to take a leading role in maintaining, enhancing and developing our ENT service.

This is a generalist position with an on-call responsibility, but sub-specialty interests can also be developed and supported. Whilst you will be the sole ENT practitioner on site at Southland Hospital, you will be supported by the clinical leader and your colleagues from Dunedin Hospital. There is also the potential that we will have a second ENT surgeon join you in the future. You will see a full range of patients in this role and perform a variety of procedures such as endoscopic sinus surgery, middle ear surgery, facial skin cancer surgery and paediatric ENT procedures. All major head & neck surgery is currently carried out at Dunedin Hospital.

Located in the lower South Island, Southland offers a wide range of recreational activities. It is home to two of New Zealand’s national parks offering opportunities for tramping, internationally acclaimed fishing and a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Four ski fields are within easy driving distance. 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 indoor velodrome and sporting complex, excellent schools and an enterprising, innovative tertiary education provider, where free fees exist.

You must have completed your specialist training to make you eligible for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. An attractive remuneration package, relocation assistance and CME allowance is included. This role will start in September 2019.

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.
