A vacancy has become available for a full time position as an anaesthetic registrar or provisional fellow at Dunedin Hospital.

Dunedin is a vibrant University City and is renowned for its surfing, mountain biking, wildlife, cafes and art scene.  You can live and play on the beach whilst only 8 minutes from the hospital.  The surrounding districts include Fiordland and Central Otago and these beautiful places are easily accessible from Dunedin.
