Are you interested in a career in Anaesthesia?
We are looking for two committed and enthusiastic candidates for our SHO positions. The full appointment is for 12 months from Decenber 2018 to December 2019 at Dunedin Hospital. Six months of this will be in anaesthesia and the other 6 months will be in rotations arranged with the RMO Unit to suit individual candidates. The first candidate will start in anaesthesia in December 2018 and the second in June 2019.
We are particularly interested in candidates who have a strong interest in anaesthesia as a career. These positions are considered a stepping stone towards the popular South Island Anaesthesia Training Scheme in the four year ANZCA Training Programme.
You will receive direct consultant teaching on a daily basis as we support you in pre-assessing patients, administering anaesthesia to all ages, providing obstetric anaesthesia, and becoming an expert in resuscitation, technical skills and pain relief. There is no on call component.
Dunedin is renowned for its surfing, mountain biking, wildlife, cafes and art scene, plus easy access to Central Otago, Queenstown and the Catlins. And where else can you live and play on the beach whilst only 8 minutes from the hospital?
Candidates are required to have at least two years postgraduate experience.
