About us

The rugged West Coast has many advantages to urban living. There are no traffic lights on the West Coast and the pace of life is gentler. You will be surrounded by down-to-earth colleagues and feel part of a community that truly values its health workers. City life is only a 30 minute flight or 3 hour drive away over beautiful mountain passes.

The roles

  • Full-time House Officer and Registrar roles commencing in December 2018
  • Every three months, you will rotate through different departments (e.g. General Medicine, General Surgery, AT&R, GP, Mental Health, Paediatrics, ED-based Acute Relief and Inpatient Relief)
  • We are accredited for two training programmes:
  1. Rural Hospital Medicine training - every three months, you will rotate through ED, General Medicine, General Surgery, Rural GP and Acute Relief
  2. GP Training

What's in it for me?

  • Adopt a medical skillset capable of helping rural communities and work more closely with Senior Medical Officers
  • Experience the very best of the great outdoors - suitable for both thrill-seekers and observers. See this link for more information: http://www.westcoasthealthcareers.co.nz/
  • Live in a family-friendly environment, with facilities and schools nearby
  • Earn 4% more than the rest of the country under the non-urban scale of the collective agreement
