Job description

Consultant Ophthalmologist
• Dunedin Hospital
• Permanent, full time

There couldn’t be a more exciting time to join our Ophthalmology team, the models of care are currently being reviewed to meet demand and innovative models of care are being explored and developed.

In this role you will participate in routine ophthalmology clinics, theatre, some outreach clinics and the on call roster. Ideally you would be an Ophthalmologist with experience and an interest in Paediatric Ophthalmology, but don’t let that deter you, we still want to hear from you if you’re a passionate Ophthalmologist looking to join our team at this exciting time.

You will be enthusiastic about teaching and passing your knowledge to junior members of staff, as we provide training to Registrars from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists.

Dunedin is a backdrop of remarkable natural beauty with various stunning beaches and cliffs that allows for a range of recreational activities. With a world-renowned university, Dunedin allows for an innovative and creative learning environment.

Everywhere in Dunedin is just a short drive away and the traffic jams are non-existent. If you ask locals or those who have made Dunedin their home what they love most about Dunedin, it’s the work/life balance and the ease of Dunedin living. You will find that life here is lived at a more leisurely pace. It's a healthy, clean and safe environment which prides itself on being genuinely welcoming and open-minded.

This role is primarily based in Dunedin but some travel across the Southern District is expected.

If you are looking for an exciting change then apply now, and don’t look back!
