ABOUT THE ROLE
Our client is after a General Practitioner for permanent cover starting from 01 August 2022. This will be covering planned GP care and unplanned.
You would join a team of seven sharing equally in the acute roster, providing both inpatient and outpatient services. They are an accredited site for Basic and Advanced Physician training and provide an excellent training experience here in General Medicine. For physicians who are dual trained there is opportunity to accommodate and negotiate ongoing sub-speciality practice and they would be open to further discussions involving any specialty alongside Internal Medicine. They have a strong sense of team work and have systems in place to ensure the inpatient workload is very manageable, especially in comparison to larger centres around New Zealand. The work life balance here is truly exceptional.
To be considered for this role you will need to be FRACP (or equivalent) holding, or be eligible to hold, a vocational registration with Medical Council of NZ. If you are an international candidate you can be considered for this role under the condition, you are eligible for vocational registration with the MCNZ. They will also consider candidates who are close to obtaining their General Medicine fellowship.
