With New Zealand’s beautiful landscapes, sunny weather and unmatched opportunities to explore the great outdoors, not to mention the great working conditions and salary, it’s easy to see why so many doctors are keen on working in New Zealand.
For our first-ever podcast, we thought it would be helpful to hear about the first-hand experiences of two doctors who have relocated to New Zealand. We were lucky enough to chat with Dr. Kate Woods and Dr. John Taylor, who are House Officers in the gorgeous Hawkes Bay.
In August 2019, they made the big move from the UK to New Zealand, if you’re a doctor planning to work in New Zealand, this podcast reveals all the essentials you’ll need to consider when planning your move.
