Are you a Gastroenterologist/General Physician looking for a new opportunity? We are looking for an additional physician to join our current team of three providing specialist services to the MidCentral region.  An SMO with ERCP training is desirable, but not essential. Our DHB is committed to providing ERCP training for an SMO if desired.

Gastroenterology provides a 24/7 endoscopy service and clinics in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. We support primary health care with advice.  Medical Services at MidCentral have a general medicine take and retain most patients in the inpatient setting although some are transferred to subspecialties e.g. cardiology, respiratory and renal.

Our Gastroenterology service is supported endoscopy, IBD and hepatitis nurses. We have a Supersonic Aixplorer Shear-Wave-Elastography ultrasound machine. We have a weekly radiology meeting. We will have an advanced gastroenterology trainee registrar from December 2016.
This is an exciting time to join MidCentral District Health Board (MDHB) as it is embarking upon a transformational change programme to firmly establish itself as a high performing health system that meets the current and future demands of its communities, that provides improved patient experiences for service users, and that achieves improved patient and community health and wellbeing. 
MDHB will build on its significant achievements to date, in particular its investment in developing primary and community care services and relationships. It will work to further reduce service duplication and fragmentation, to move care into and closer to people’s homes, and to achieve an integrated and community focused high performing health system.
Applicants must be eligible for vocational registration in Internal Medicine with the Medical Council of New Zealand with specialist training / qualification in Gastroenterology, as well as having demonstrated clinical, management, and teaching skills and the ability to work effectively within the multi-disciplinary team.
