House Officers & Registrars (RMOs)


***Due to the current Alert Level 4 status DHBs nationally have agreed to change the annual recruitment offer day for Registrar and Senior House Officer appointments to Monday 30th August 2021. Previously this was Monday 23rd August 2021. 

There is no impact to the  House Officer offer date at this stage.  This will remain at Monday 06 September 2021 for House Officers*** 


Are you sick of sitting on the sidelines? Thanks to their size, our hospitals are able to offer our RMOs the chance to gain experience and to take on responsibilities they wouldn’t be able to elsewhere. Our RMO Committee has been designed to support you in partaking in new things, both in and out of work, and our team of specialists have the expertise, but more importantly the time to teach those eager to learn.

For the ultimate combination of learning, specialty help and practical experience, choose a House Officer or Registrar role at Southern.

Electives: If you’re a final-year (sixth-year) trainee intern medical student from outside of New Zealand, The Dunedin School of Medicine offers elective positions at both Dunedin and Southland teaching hospitals. Both these hospitals have strong connections to the Dunedin School of medicine and as such can offer you the support you need.
