FTE (Hours): 1
Date Posted: 17/08/2020
Application Closing Date: Open
Job #: RMOS228

Keen to further develop your skills in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology?

Southern DHB is currently seeking applications from non-training registrars and both core and/or advanced trainees who are interested in joining the team at Southland Hospital.    

Southland Hospital is a modern, 180+ bed, secondary level 4 base hospital situated in Invercargill, New Zealand.  The Hospital services a population of approximately 108,000 throughout Invercargill, Queenstown, Gore, Stewart Island and rural Southland.   The unit itself has approximately 1500 deliveries per year.   

Where do I fit?

You’ll be part of a small but dedicated team of Consultants, midwives, and obstetrics, gynaecology and colposcopy nurses, and offered extensive opportunities to develop your skills and talents as a Women’s Health practitioner.   

You will be working with experienced surgeons, doing a variety of open, laparoscopic, and vaginal surgery.  Many registrars find they get much needed exposure and experience in laparoscopic hysterectomies.   There is the opportunity to upskill in colposcopy for advanced trainees, and opportunities for exposure and upskilling in ultrasound.

On any day you may be working in one of the 14 maternity rooms, four birthing rooms, operating theatre, or in our various clinics. 

What's in it for me?

  1. A lifestyle that is hard to beat!  Southland is a wonderful place for families, with great educational facilities (primary through tertiary) and many activities available for all ages.  Some of New Zealand’s most famous national parks, great walks, ski fields and wineries are within easy driving distance.  To find out more about living here please click the following link

  5. One year of training at any level for RANZCOG trainees
  6. 24/7 access to the library, weekly teaching and Grand Rounds, journal clubs, regular RMO forums, and exposure to a range of presentations to the hospital – all of which will equip you with a broad skill base to serve you well as you progress in your career
  7. Free parking
