Have you ever wondered how great it would be to walk away from the laboratory at the end of the day and 30 minutes later to be on your surf board riding the waves, or able to spend your weekends hiking or mountain biking in native bush.

For the pathologists working for Southern Community Laboratories in New Zealand this is not something they wonder about, depending which of our laboratories you are located in this is the reality.

In order to practise in New Zealand you will be a medical practitioner, registered or eligible for registration with the New Zealand Medical Council, and a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia, or be eligible for Fellowship within six months.  You will need to be highly motivated, able to develop strong working relationships with laboratory staff and clinicians, and capable of working with a supportive and dynamic team.
