About the Opportunity
If you’re a skilled Orthoptist who’s ready for a lifestyle change and extending yourself you’ll find just what you’re looking for right here. Join our team and you’ll be working as an autonomous independent practitioner at Dunedin Hospital, but with quick access to doctors and other medical staff. Those include several of New Zealand’s finest Ophthalmologists, all with their own specialities, so you’ll be exposed to high levels of expertise in a range of different areas at this university teaching hospital. You’ll follow patient care through from start to finish, and travel regularly to Invercargill to provide services there, so this is an ideal environment to develop and grow your professional skills even further.
Paediatrics is a major portion of this role so if you enjoy working with children you’ll get plenty of satisfaction from this role.
With Dunedin’s new hospital in the planning stages, you’ve also got a once-in-a-career opportunity to be involved in creating a fantastic eye clinic for children, a child-friendly space where they – and their parents – can feel comfortable and cared for. In fact, in this role you’ll have plenty of opportunity to give your input. Our DHB and eye clinic are always open to hearing suggestions and ideas for improving patient care and exploring better ways of working.
For the right candidate we can offer assistance with relocation and initial accommodation.
