Annual recruitment


Application guidelines

 

  • You can apply for positions in more than one area/specialty.
  • You can apply for a house officer position, as well as a registrar position.
  • It is possible to apply for a junior registrar position after two years as a house officer. 
  • You can only apply for registrar positions in general surgery, orthopaedics and psychiatry.


House officer, basic registrar and advanced registrar level opportunities will be advertised separately on our website. When you apply, you will be asked to identify the specialties you wish to be considered for within the level to which you are applying.

If you wish to apply for both a house officer and a registrar position, you will need to submit a separate application under each of these levels.

Note: You must be eligible for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand under the General or Provisional General Scope of Practice. Applications from those who are eligible under another scope of practice cannot be accepted.

In New Zealand, the term SHO refers to a house officer in the third year of experience or higher.


Basic registrar positions are available in surgery, psychiatry and orthopaedics.
