Palmy - perfect place for a Paediatrician
 
MidCentral DHB requires ALL its employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. To comply with the current Health Order, applicants must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 no later than 1 January 2022. We are not accepting applications that do not meet this criteria.
 
MidCentral District Health Board actively seeks Māori into our workforce to reflect the community we serve.

We are looking for a vibrant enthusiastic specialist to join our Child Health service from July 2022 in a part time capacity (0.7FTE).  This role will suit either a newly qualified or experienced Paediatrician holding vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) or eligible to.

As a Paediatrician in Palmerston North you will share a 1:8 acute roster covering the broad gamut of acute paediatrics with a 14-bed level 2A neonatal unit taking babies 28 weeks gestation (1000g) and over. The service is supported by dedicated Paediatric RMOs on site at all times. You will enjoy a range of outpatient clinics in the hospital and the community.  We are expanding innovative models of care in partnership with nursing and general practice.  Your special interests will complement those of the extant Paediatricians, or can be developed in tandem once you are here. 

We enjoy excellent liaison with tertiary colleagues from Starship and Wellington, who all visit on a regular basis.  We are proud of our reputation as a centre for trainees in Paediatrics, General Practice and Emergency Medicine.

If you are eager to map out your Paediatric future, with a flexible approach to sharing local duties, as well as regional responsibilities, then Palmerston North in the Manawatū may be perfect for you.

We wish to appoint a person who will fit in with our current team, who will help us as we evolve integration while maintaining the strengths of acute hospital care.
