Locum Specialist Medical Oncologist

• Southern Blood & Cancer Service, Dunedin Hospital, New Zealand

Southern District Health Board has an exciting opportunity for you to embark on a new challenge living in a unique and attractive location in beautiful Aotearoa. We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Medical Oncologist to join our friendly team in Dunedin Hospital on a full-time, fixed term basis.

The Southern Blood & Cancer Service provides a team of 5 Medical Oncologists, 5 Radiation Oncologists and 6 Haematologists working in a tertiary referral centre with strong links to the School of Medicine at Otago University. Dunedin Hospital is a 350-bed teaching and training institution that offers a full complement of sub-specialities and a training site for the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. As such we encourage and support staff research and their continuing medical education. Our Service has a solid research program and we would welcome applications from Physicians with a sub-speciality interest or those with an interest in teaching.

Our Service provides regional care and covers the lower South Island so you would be required to participate in outreach clinics. A requirement of the position is that you will have Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians or an equivalent qualification, enabling specialist (vocational) registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

Whether it is surfing, kayaking or sailing, skiing, hunting or fishing, theatre, live-music or art – there’s literally something for everyone. Why don’t you check out for what we can offer you and your whanau.

If this sounds like the opportunity you have been waiting for then apply today!

Closing Date: 29 January 2021
