Southland Hospital has an opportunity for a Consultant Geriatrician to live and work in a part of the world renowned for lifestyle. It offers an opportunity to achieve that elusive work/life balance while working with a dedicated team of like-minded health care professionals. They are a team who together get the job done, who are there for each other and enjoy getting to know their patients, their families and the communities in which they live.

You’ll provide specialist care to inpatients and outpatients referred to our Older Peoples Health and Rehabilitation Services. Your duties will include general assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for older people using a restorative approach across inpatient, outpatient (urban and rural), and community settings. Liaison with other hospital specialities is an important component of our successful management of complex health issues in older people. Our objective is to enable patients to achieve the highest possible level of independence and the services operate with an emphasis on:

• Promoting wellness, independence and participation
• Close liaison with community services
• Using a multi-disciplinary team approach.

As we have close links to the University of Otago School of Medicine, we envisage the successful candidate to be committed to the teaching of medical students and working with junior medical staff.

Invercargill is a city known for it’s southern hospitality, with some of New Zealand’s most famous scenery and holiday spots on it's doorstep (Queenstown, Wanaka, Milford Sound, Stewart Island). You have the opportunity to access a diverse range of leisure activities from skiing to trout fishing, surfing, hiking or mountain biking, all just a stone’s throw from your door. Invercargill has an abundance of amenities, educational (primary through tertiary) facilities, an arts scene and a cultural life.

Here, along with a wonderful change of pace, you can look forward to a competitive pay rate and a culture where staff are included, valued and respected for their expertise.

You will need to have completed your specialist training and be eligible for vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. The position offers an attractive remuneration package, relocation assistance and CME package.

Sound like the change you’ve been waiting for? We encourage you to talk to our team about how we can support you, your partner and your family with the move.
