We are seeking an Emergency Medicine Specialist to be based in Hamilton. Situated on the banks of New Zealand’s longest river, it is New Zealand’s 4th largest city, and its rich cultural mix and vibrant centre makes it a perfect place to experience the friendly Kiwi lifestyle.

Hamilton’s ED is the major regional referral and trauma centre for the Waikato region with a catchment population of over 800,000 people. They see approximately 79,000 patients per year with a broad case-mix of presentations from paediatrics to geriatrics, medicine to trauma – there is no aspect of emergency medical care they do not provide.  Acuity is high with a 36% admission rate.

We would love to hear from candidates with experience in a variety of emergency medicine settings (including major EDs), who are interested in being involved in emergency medicine care, education and research, and keen to face the daily clinical challenges that come from working in our vibrant and busy ED.
