Tired of watching out for snakes and spiders? Sick of getting pummelled in the rugby? Have you considered moving to NZ?

Join an emerging team of Rural Generalists as we establish a best practice model in Rural Hospital Medicine.

Taupo Hospital, based in the centre of the North Island, services approx. 34,000 local residents and large numbers of tourists. It combines a 14 bed busy emergency department with a 15 bed inpatient unit, an operating theatre, birth suite, chemotherapy infusion clinic and busy outpatient department. Excitingly a CT scanner will be operational by the end of the year.

We are gathering an enthusiastic team of clinicians dedicated to building a leading rural medical service. The job is a generalist blend of emergency department work seeing all ages and presentations, adult inpatient medicine and outpatient practice.

We are committed to better servicing our local community and in time there may be opportunities to develop services around paediatric, obstetrics & gynaecology, general practice and minor surgical procedures/endoscopy depending on your existing skills and experience.
