Emergency Medicine Fellow


Our Purpose: What We’re Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special. We’re world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we’re always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we’re all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata

Putting people at the heart of all we do 

For us to continue to putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we’re putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What’s important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do. 

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.

The Role: What This Opportunity’s All About

We are currently recruiting Fellows to join our team on a fixed term contract from April 2019 to June 2020. Our Fellow roles have been designed to support transition into specialist practise.

There are no night shifts, reduced weekends, 17% rostered non-clinical time, and an especially prepared Fellow Teaching Programme. You will also partake in SMO meetings and have the opportunity to run the floor in a supported environment at times, and at other times work as the “Senior Registrar” on the floor. There is a CME entitlement, and there is very good availability of leave.

The Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department is one of the busiest in Australasia - seeing 100,000+ patients per annum, of which 45% are admitted as in-patients or our ED Observation Area. Working in this department with a highly skilled multidisciplinary team will give you the opportunity to gain specialist clinical and leadership experience. Christchurch City offers excellent lifestyle opportunities also.

If successful, you will lead the care of patients who present in the department, and you will play a key role in managing patient flow. You will also contribute to the education and supervision of medical and other staff.

You will also need to be a Fellow of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEM) be nearing completion or hold an equivalent specialist qualification. Taking up the fellow position puts you in the ideal situation to apply in future for Medical Specialist positions in this and other tertiary Emergency Departments.
