Consultant Specialist Neurosurgeon

Based at Dunedin Public Hospital, New Zealand

Participating in the South Island Neurosurgery Service

• Fixed term - 1 year, full-time

Applications are invited from registered Medical Practitioners who hold the relevant qualifications and experience to join us, the Southern District Health Board in a 1 year fixed term appointment, to commence as soon as possible.

The South Island Regional Neurosurgical Service was established in 2011 and functions as a single service, delivered from two sites, these being Christchurch and Dunedin. You will be based on the Dunedin Hospital site and together with one hospital Neurosurgeon and one academic Neurosurgeon in Dunedin and five Neurosurgeons in Christchurch, you will form a regional service under the governance of a separate Governance Board.

Neurosurgery Services have a proud history in the provision of care in Dunedin, and this is an exciting opportunity to be a member of this regional service in supportive hospital and community environments.

Dunedin Hospital is a 350-bed teaching and training institution. It is closely associated with the Dunedin School of Medicine, the University of Otago and is a Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Surgeons Integrated Training Program site. The Otago Medical School offers undergraduate training and all sub-specialities are represented in the Southern District Health Board. Dunedin offers a unique and attractive lifestyle with the benefits of working in a tertiary referral centre, in a small Neurosurgical Unit that will operate as part of a larger regional service. The position includes provision of continuing medical education opportunities.

Dunedin is a wonderful little city with a big town feel and well-known for its southern hospitality. If you’re considering a move down South, feel free to come and talk to us about the job, the good schools, the University of Otago and the recreational potential which Dunedin and its surrounds possess.

You must be eligible for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand, and have a higher qualification in the specialty of Neurosurgery. It is essential you have general neurosurgery training and skills, and either have, or be willing to develop, subspecialty interests and subspecialty training that will enhance the delivery of neurosurgery in Christchurch and contribute to the development of the South Island Neurosurgical Service.

Candidates who are not currently registered with the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) should be aware that it is the requirement of the MCNZ 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. For more information please visit MCNZ website re EPIC Credentialing.
