LOCUM - Consultant Radiation Oncologist

LOCUM - Consultant Radiation Oncologist
Dunedin Hospital

  • One Year Locum
  • Supportive team environment


Now is the right time for a change in coming to Dunedin. Dunedin is building a state-of-the-art digital hospital. Get in on the ground floor and help us turn this dream into reality as a Locum Radiation Oncologist!  We endeavour to meet the needs of our patients and community. Instead of worrying about the increased costs of living, take on working in Dunedin with a great balance of work and play.


Mōu ake | About you
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.


For this role, you must either be registered (or eligible) with the Medical Council of New Zealand and have a specialist qualification in Radiation Oncology that is recognised by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists as suitable for Vocational Registration in New Zealand.

Ōtepoti | About Dunedin
Dunedin is a great little city with a big town feel and is 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, wining and dining. It’s one of the best places for families and if you are an empty nester this is the place to build a new lifestyle base. Many of our staff combine a hospital career with care of life-style blocks, pursuit of sporting or equestrian interests, viticulture or even farming.
