Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi. Engari, he toa takitini.

Success is not the work of one, but the work of many.

We are seeking a suitably qualified cardiologist to join our team who can contribute to the development of our cardiology service.

We are seeking a specialist with skills and experience primarily in imaging cardiology, with facilities available on site for diagnostic angiography, CT coronary angiography and echocardiography.

This position sits within the general medical department. Our current cardiologists contribute to the acute medical service, and it would be expected that the applicant ideally also be involved in this roster. The department comprises 26 physicians across multiple specialties providing services to meet the diverse needs of our community.

Our group has a strong collegial approach and an active commitment to ongoing education, with regular grand round, journal club and case presentations as well as a weekly physicians audit and planning meetings.

The District Health Board (DHB) works in partnership with Wellington Medical School, University of Otago and the local EIT to provide an educational environment for medical, nursing and allied health students. It employs 2900 people and offers a wide range of services, including medical, surgical and emergency care, mental health and addiction services, intensive care, maternity care, with radiology and laboratory services.

The majority of services are offered at Hawke’s Bay Fallen Soldiers Memorial Hospital in Hastings, which has a 400 bed capacity and is one of the largest provincial hospitals in New Zealand. In addition, there are many rural and community based services as well as close links with Wellington and Palmerston North Hospitals for tertiary services not on site, which include interventional cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery.

We have no doubt that you’ll love everything Hawke’s Bay has to offer; an environment and work/life balance that is second to none. Hawke’s Bay has a diverse population of 162,000 people in both urban and remote rural areas. Situated on the east coast of the North Island, you’ll enjoy the stunning climate and beaches; a wide range of sporting and leisure opportunities; art, wine, food and culture.

This is your chance to develop your career, enjoy the benefits of a fantastic region and achieve a desirable work life balance.

The successful applicant should have FRACP (or equivalent) with specialist training in cardiology and be registered (or is eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
