Medical Oncologist

Senior Medical Officer - Medical Oncology 


Come and make this the defining role of your career. It’s the chance to excel and grow professionally - surrounded by dedicated, supportive and highly talented colleagues. Yet it’s also a huge opportunity to help shape and guide the evolution of our Blood and Cancer Service – setting us up with the best people, processes, and patient-centred care. What’s more – while you’ll thrive in the professional challenge and satisfaction this creates - you’ll be enjoying it all while living in one of the most enviable locations in the world: stunning Southern New Zealand. We are dedicated to giving everything we’ve got to creating a world-class oncology service for our communities and our team. So if you’re ready to give it your all to be part of this exciting journey, read on.


You’ll be in your element here – providing clinical expertise in the leading-edge environment at Dunedin Hospital, our 350-bed teaching and training institution. But we are sure you will also relish the chance to lead the management of our inpatient, and out of town clinics. Here, you can look forward to the variety and interaction that comes with attending outpatient clinics at locations across the region. In an overarching capacity, we’ll also look to you to provide first-rate education, supervision, and support to doctors in training and interns


To join us and truly make this role your own, it’s essential you have a Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians or an equivalent qualification, enabling specialist (vocational) registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. 


If you share our passion for innovation and continuous improvement in patient centred care, and you are excited at the prospect of helping us create and navigate our future path, we’re keen to hear from you.
