The Canterbury District Health Board systematically plan, fund and deliver care to almost 600,000 people that live in the Canterbury region. The Canterbury Health System is a world leader in the delivery of integrated health care. Our main focus is placing people (staff and patients alike) at the centre of everything we do.
Christchurch Urology is a tertiary referral centre and covers all aspects of Urology (paediatric, urogynae, oncology, spinal, and general). The team consists of nine Urologists who work closely together in a very collegial and supportive team.
Christchurch is New Zealand's second-largest city and is reinventing itself after the 2011 earthquakes. The rebuild has seen some well thought through designs come through to fruition with more to come, making Christchurch a vibrant and exciting place. Surrounded by the Southern Alps and the Pacific Ocean the outdoor recreational opportunities are stunning.
The Department of Urology is looking for a Urologist to take up a position of 0.8 FTE so would allow time to enjoy the activities and environment offered by the Canterbury region. There is also an opportunity to join sub-specialised colleagues to further interests in these areas.
This role is a 12-month fixed-term role to cover maternity leave. Ideally, we are looking for someone to start in June 2021, but this date is negotiable.
On-call commitments are shared fairly across the team and supervision can be arranged. We are the major public urology department in the South Island and, as such, there may be some travel outside Christchurch to facilitate outpatient clinics in other areas.
This position would suit newly qualified urologists before or after a fellowship as well as urologists looking for a change.
You would need to be eligible for a pathway towards Vocational Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
