Geriatrician, Timaru Hospital, New Zealand

Vacancy: Full-time geriatrician (+ negotiable on-call)

The South Canterbury District Health Board is looking to recruit a Geriatrician to work in the Assessment Treatment and Rehabilitation Ward, alongside another experienced Geriatrician. You will share in the care of a 20 bed sub-acute care unit and participate in community visits and clinic visits. You will be working with a well-coordinated interdisciplinary team, that includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work and nursing.

Based in the family friendly environment of Timaru in the centre of New Zealand’s picturesque South Island, you will enjoy the genuine ease of access to a host of outdoor activities (e.g. five ski fields, several lakes and mountains all within one to two hours drive), together with many outstanding local sporting facilities (some of international standard, like SCF Tennis Centre, Aorangi Park Sport Stadium, Timaru Motor Raceway and CBay Aquatic Centre). There is truly something here for most to pursue or develop interests in outside of work. Traffic jams are unheard of, local state and integrated schools offer quality education and housing is affordable.

Live the dream of achievable work/life balance and enjoy a friendly professional work environment!
