As part of a small but dedicated team, you'll have excellent access to the General Surgery and Urology Consultants and unrivalled opportunities to experience many of the varied surgical presentations to the hospital. In return we offer you the opportunity to learn, up close, the skills needed to improve your ability to enter Surgical Education Training.
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.
