Specialist Intensive Care – Dual Trained Specialists welcome
Full time, Permanent or fixed term
Southern District Health Board
As we develop our refurbished ICU at Dunedin Hospital, we have opportunities for Specialist Intensivists with a subspecialty interest in one of the following areas; Anaesthesia, Respiratory or Cardiology.
The new ICU and HDU’s will be physically linked, on the same floor, allowing us to increase bed numbers and ability for our team to work across the two units easily.
Dunedin Hospital has almost 400 beds and provides care for a population of approximately 180,000 spread over the lower South Island of New Zealand. Allocation of time for clinical duties and patient care is 50% of the working week. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) duties will be conducted as part of a shared roster with twelve other colleagues in intensive care medicine. Additionally, colleagues from emergency medicine and anaesthesia currently participate in the weekend aero-medical retrieval roster. You would be expected to provide a mixture of cover for ICU, retrieval services, HDU and outreach services.
Depending upon the additional specialty you hold, such as respiratory, nephrology, emergency medicine or anaesthesia, we will negotiate the FTE you have with the other Service. You will be expected to undertake a full share of the Intensive Care on-call roster with other members of the team. Other duties include participation in team ward rounds, quality and safety activities, audit and clinical review meetings. Additional payment is made for clinical duties outside of regular hours, in negotiation with the Southern District Health Board.
Outside of work, you’ll find life in Dunedin to be very easy with its affordable living, great schools, laid back lifestyle and world-famous wildlife on the Otago Peninsula. The town centre is compact but has plenty of energy, which is to be expected with it being a student-town. This sustains some great activities such as theatre, live-music and a great selection of restaurants and cafes. Central Otago, with all of its great holiday spots and outdoor recreation opportunities is also easily accessible from Dunedin.
To be considered for these roles, it is essential that you hold a Post Graduate qualification in Intensive Care Medicine, and Medicine/surgery (CICM or equivalent) allowing you to gain locum tenans or provisional vocational registration with the New Zealand Medical Council, it is desirable that you have additional training and fellowship. We will be considering all applications individually on receipt.
Closing Date: Thursday 18 October 2018
Candidates who are not currently registered with the New Zealand Medical Council should be aware that from 1 November 2017 it will be the requirement of the NZ Medical Council that your qualifications are approved through EPIC. If you have a commitment to working in New Zealand it is highly recommended that you start this process as soon as possible so as to allow your subsequent registration to be undertaken in a timely fashion.
