Senior Medical Registrar – General Medicine


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 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

At Canterbury District Health Board, you will gain world class experience in the South Island’s largest tertiary, teaching and research hospitals. These hospitals provide a full range of emergency, acute, elective and outpatient services. With over 450 Resident Doctors employed at the CDHB, we pride ourselves on our level of medical education, training and supervision.

We are looking for a Senior Medical Registrar – General Medicine.

The senior registrar role in General Medicine, is for advanced trainees who are post-FRACP exam, preferably in their last 2 years of training.  As one of the three senior registrars, you will share the duty of providing leadership for other registrars working on acute teams, assisting those less experienced with the investigation and management of patients. Most of this work is done on our acute admitting ward [AMAU] and in ED working on a one-in-three long day roster. Some acute patients will be diverted into ambulatory and “rapid response” clinics. You will be responsible for booking and running these clinics. Other sub-specialty clinics are also available to you depending on your interests. You will lead the morning handover meetings, represent the registrar ‘voice’ at various forums and will be expected to take part in departmental research.
