Mō te tūranga | About the role
The Dunedin Public Hospital Eye Department provides ophthalmology services to all of Otago and Southland so we require a dynamic, hardworking individual with excellent time management skills to become an integral part of our close-knit team.   Our links with the University of Otago and affiliation with the Otago Medical School means that you are an honorary lecturer to Medical Students and there is a chance to be involved in research.  We also provide training to registrars from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists and enjoy helping them on their journey towards becoming a future ophthalmologist and often host the ‘Part 2’ course prep in the department.

 

We are seeking an Ophthalmologist that knows the New Zealand health system intricately and the constraints we face within ophthalmology – so we welcome applications from a forward thinking, innovative ophthalmologist that loves challenges and working in a busy department. This role is primarily based in Dunedin but some travel across the Southern District is expected. You will be expected to participate in the on call roster, routine ophthalmology clinics, theatre and some outreach clinics. You will also need to be flexible with your scheduling. You must have completed your specialist training and be eligible or already hold vocational registration with the New Zealand Medical Council.

  • FRANZCO or equivalent board certification (American board of Ophthalmology, FRCSC, FRCOphth)
