About Invercargill
As soon as you land in Invercargill you will instantly call this place your home. Situated at the base of the South Island of New Zealand, the people are renowned for their warmth, friendliness and hospitality. Invercargill has a relaxing feel around the town and the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities is nonexistent. Everywhere in Invercargill is close by yet there is an abundance of space and beautiful national parks in the surroundings.

About the Team
You will join a dynamic team of 7 physicians sharing equally in the acute roster, providing both inpatient and outpatient services. We take great pride in our sense of community down south, and you will see this in the tight knit family feel amongst the team and the wider staff.

About the Role – what’s in it for me?
We have a 38 bed medical ward and 6 bed critical care unit, covering the Southland, Queenstown and Te Anau regions. Sub-speciality support is provided predominantly by Dunedin Hospital. There is ample opportunity to participate in our departmental teaching programme which amounts to 4 hours each week, and we have close links with the University of Otago as witnessed by the number of students that train here. For physicians who are dual trained there is opportunity to accommodate ongoing sub-speciality practice.

We offer an attractive annual salary package based on skills and experience as well as full CME entitlement, superannuation and annual leave. We also offer an attractive relocation package.

About You
You will be a General Medicine Physician, with or without subspecialty interest or qualification, looking to join our vibrant close-knit team.

Closing Date: Sunday 28 July
