As part of a small but dedicated urology team, you'll have unrivalled opportunities to experience many of the varied presentations to the hospital. This is an excellent opportunity to gain the required urological and surgical skills and experience prior to SET applications.
As the Urology registrar you will be responsible for the inpatients and acute admissions, there will be a minimum of 3 operating sessions per week with access to outpatients and minor procedure clinics. You will be exposed to a broad range of urological procedures and as the only registrar will be in a position to progress your operative skills and assist in major procedures. There will also be opportunities to work closely with the General Surgeons as part of the surgical registrar on call rota and you may be requested to assist with occasional clinics and operating lists. If your progression through to training requires it, a formal General Surgical run can easily be arranged as part of your employment.
You won't find yourself out in the cold at Southland Hospital - with our close-knit small team structure, our RMO's spend more time with Senior staff than in the wilderness of a larger DHB. When you're not skiing, snow boarding, tramping, surfing, kayaking or touring wineries, you'll be working out of our modern Hospital and with weekly teaching and Grand Rounds, journal clubs and regular RMO forums you'll be continually supported in your development.
As a minimum requirement, you will have a minimum of 2 years post graduate medical experience and a keen interest in providing acute and elective surgical care to our community.
