Job description

We have an exciting new opening for a Senior Medical Officer looking for a small city, rural, farm, or beach lifestyle opportunity, living and working in the Whangarei area.

This position provides outpatient care from the main team location in Whangarei as well as from satellite clinics in other parts of the district.

We offer you the chance to provide leadership to a multidisciplinary team, with support for your professional development and plenty of opportunities to make a difference.

You will become part of a broader group of psychiatrists within the district contributing to care across the age bands, and in sub-specialty services including maternal mental health, early psychosis service and addictions, as well as a group of child and adolescent psychiatrist colleagues within the greater Northern Region.
