Job description

Timaru, New Zealand

South Canterbury DHB Emergency Department is looking for NZ Registered/Registerable doctors with either emergency and/or rural hospital training experience to join our permanent staff.

We are a 10 bed department, covering a wide range of emergency presentations, including trauma, with backup from inpatient teams, including anaesthesia, paediatrics, mental health, surgical and internal medicine specialists. The ED team is a tight-knit group, consisting of 7.61 FTE SMO’s and a core of experienced and multi-skilled ED nurses.

The roster consists of 3 overlapping 9-hour shifts, (plus some degree of House Officer assistance).
Currently the roster has no night shift or ‘on-call’ requirements and operates on a 6 week cycle, allowing some predictability for personal planning.

Successful applicants will be offered a position based on the DHB/ASMS MECA terms and conditions, including a generous CME allowance. We have strong links with the University of Otago School of Medicine, with opportunities for SMOs to become involved as Clinical Supervisors.
Timaru Hospital is formally classified as a Level 2 hospital with 135 beds, offering a range of surgical, medical, obstetric and paediatric services.

South Canterbury offers a lifestyle opportunity second to none: this is an easy place to live, family friendly and very low crime, with instant access to an astounding array of outdoor activities - one of New Zealand’s top ten beaches, ski fields with both learner and advanced slopes, lakes and mountains - the iconic McKenzie Country is on our doorstep.

When it comes to public amenities you are spoilt for choice, with multiple golf courses, a new aquatic/gym facility and excellent sporting venues.

The climate is great: hot summers, crisp winters, there is no such thing as a commute to work, great properties, including lifestyle blocks, are extremely affordable and primary and secondary educational facilities are superb, with two internationally renowned Universities within two hours’ drive.
