The Organisation

Te Pae Hauora o Ruahine o Tararua MidCentral (MidCentral) is part of Te Whatu Ora, Health New Zealand and provides healthcare services to over 180,000 people across the Manawatū, Horowhenua and Tararua regions. With a large hospital campus in Palmerston North, it also provides key health care and support services to neighbouring communities.

The Opportunity

Are you looking for an opportunity to broaden your knowledge and skills as a Medical Registrar in geriatrics? Then this may be the job for you, based in Levin in the beautiful Horowhenua with a choice of beach locations on your doorstep. 

We are seeking three Registrars to work on the inpatient rehabilitation ward at Horowhenua Health Centre. This position is suitable for either a Basic or Advanced Trainee (AT).

Patients are predominantly over 65 requiring post-acute care, rehabilitation or palliative care. There is a requirement to cover on call in the evenings and weekends on a one in four rotation.

Working under the supervision of a consultant geriatrician and with a highly skilled and experienced multi-disciplinary team, this position will also offer the opportunity to do outpatient clinics in geriatrics, home visits accompanied by a geriatrician or CNS and reviews in aged residential care. This will provide invaluable experience in geriatrics and the management of older people with frailty, regardless of the specialty you eventually choose. If you are preparing for the FRACP clinical exam or want to complete an AT research project, you will have ample time for private study. There is regular teaching both on site and at Palmerston North Hospital (via Zoom).

Levin is a rapidly growing provincial town with a population of approximately 20,000. Nearby beach settlements of Foxton, Waitarere, Hokio, Ohau and Te Horo give you options for village living if that is your vibe. Surfing, swimming and boating are all options. Alternatively you could live in Palmerston North and commute daily (approx. 40 minutes).

With the newly opened Transmission Gully road to Wellington, the best little capital in the world is closer than ever – just over an hour away  for shopping, art galleries, restaurants, cafes and concerts.
