Permanent, full-time

For some it's the slow pace of life; for some it's the quick access to Central Otago, the vineyards, the fishing, the skiing; for some it's having an affordable life-style block but only being minutes from town; and for some it's just a great place to bring up a family.

You'll join us as an experienced Consultant ENT Surgeon in Southland Hospital, one of the newest Hospital's in the South Island of New Zealand, providing modern and easily accessible facilities for staff and patients alike. It is the base hospital for a wide geographical area, creating enormous scope for variety in the work of a talented professional like you. There's no better place to take a leading role in maintaining and enhancing our ENT Service, while taking the initiative in developing new ones.

This is a generalist position with an on-call responsibility, and sub-specialty interests can also be developed and supported. Whilst you will be the sole ENT practitioner on-site at Southland Hospital, there is the potential that we'll have a second ENT Surgeon join you, either way, you'll be supported by the clinical leader and colleagues from Dunedin Hospital. You'll see the full range of patients in this role, and perform a variety of procedures, such as endoscopic sinus surgery, middle ear surgery, facial skin cancer surgery and paediatric ENT procedures. All major head and neck surgery is currently carried out at Dunedin Hospital.

You must have completed your specialist training to make you eligible for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
