We are offering the opportunity for you to join us at Dunedin Hospital for a period of 6 month to a year locum position (though you’ll probably want to stay longer). This comes with so many benefits, to name a few:

Dunedin is a great little city with a big town feel and we are well known for our southern hospitality. Our little gem boasts amazing scenery and wildlife; while being a university town we have the vibrant energy for concerts, a strong café culture, plus great wining and dining. We are the closest Oncology Service to word renowned Adventure capital of NZ, Queenstown; only up the road from the Catlins, a coastal dream for exploring.

About our Service
As an advanced training centre we currently have four Registrars and a full team of Physicists and Radiation Therapists.  We have three linear accelerators and a new planning CT. Recently we have commissioned Brainlab to complement our existing Monaco planning system.  This enables us to provide the NZ National Stereotactic service and develop new and innovative techniques. 

As a service, we deliver 1500 courses per year to a wide range of indications and are supported by tertiary specialities including Medical Oncology, Haematology, Palliative Care and Surgery. We have a strong community focus providing outreach treatment and outpatient services across the region; for some clinics, you can enjoy a scenic flight over the mountains to reach your patients.

We have an established research group and are involved in both radiation and systemic therapy trials. We have close links to Otago University, and are one of just two teaching hospitals in New Zealand. There will be time set aside in your week to teach as well as expand and refine your skill set.

About You

For this role, you must either be a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologist, holding registration or willing to register with the Medical Council of New Zealand or:

Hold a full Vocational Registration in the Radiation Oncology Scope of practice with Medical Council of New Zealand.
