Where do I fit?

The values of the SDHB, Kind – Manaakitanga, Open – Pono, Positive – Whaiwhakaaro, and Commmunity – Whanaungatanga, reflect the essence of the people in Dunedin and Otago.  You’ll find us friendly and welcoming, and your multi-disciplinary team caring and supportive.

This role is split to provide a comprehensive general Paediatric and Neonatal service with a number of clinic options.  With a level 3 NICU, and Children’s Unit housed in new facilities, you’ll be part of a team involved in retrievals and transports, as well as outpatient clinics where you’ll be exposed to a range of clinical presentations.
