Job description

Our Purpose

The Canterbury District Health Board systematically plan, fund and deliver care to almost 600,000 people that live in the Canterbury region. The Canterbury Health System is a world leader in the delivery of integrated health care. Our main focus is placing people (staff and patients alike) at the centre of everything we do.

The Team

General Medicine at Christchurch Hospital is a busy and dynamic acute service, dealing with over 16000 admissions per year. All patients are assessed in our 36 bed acute medical assessment unit (AMAU), before being transferred to one of three dedicated General Medical wards.

Here in Canterbury we are looking at the largest hospital build in the history of New Zealand's public health service and you will be a part of it as we develop new models of general medical care, ready for our new 40 bed AMAU which will be commissioned in 2020.

The Role

We are seeking a General Physician to join our department at Christchurch Hospital in early 2020 on a full-time (0.9FTE), fixed-term parental leave role.

In this role you will lead one of sixteen general medical teams working a one in four acute rosters.

We are open to applications from Registered Medical Practitioners who have advanced training in General Medicine and are eligible for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

Our Culture: What matters to us

Ko ngā tāngata, te mātua mahi
Putting people at the heart of all we do

Health is ultimately all about people. What's important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility taken for delivering outcomes, and going about our work with integrity.

Belonging Here

Being part of the Canterbury District Health Board, our people enjoy access to, flexible working arrangements and a genuine and ongoing focus on career development.

We hope you'll seriously consider joining us, but if this role isn't a good fit for you, please share this opportunity with people in your personal networks.

The Canterbury DHB believes that diversity and inclusion is key to ensure we deliver the best care for our diverse population. The Canterbury DHB is an inclusive and equal opportunity employer that welcomes and respects everyone.
