General Physician 
Timaru Hospital, New Zealand

We consider ourselves lucky to have a tight knit team of Physicians who enjoy being part of a well-run department, supported by keen RMO’s eager to learn, along with great Nurses and Allied Health staff, who ensure the ward and patients receive the care and attention they deserve.

Our Physicians have discovered the secret of maintaining an enviable work/life balance... by coming to work and live in Timaru.

Our service may be small by many standards, but it is certainly big on teamwork, camaraderie (including regular after hours socialising), and clinical challenge in a true generalist sense.

With a 1:6 weekend on-call roster commitment, and regular time scheduled off the ward, our team think they have the mix about right.
And when not working, the opportunities literally on the doorstep for recreational pastimes are almost too numerous to mention, other than to point out that when people first arrive in Timaru and start experiencing the true lifestyle on offer, the most common reaction is almost one of disbelief that you can have it so good.

Why not experience that for yourself, become re-engaged in your passion for General Medicine, while having the personal time and access to a life outside of clinical commitments that allows one to relax.

We think you would find that Timaru ticks many boxes (including some you possibly didn’t realise you wanted).

You will of course need to be Vocationally Registered with the Medical Council of NZ in Internal Medicine to be eligible to be considered.

Closing date: OPEN 2017.
