Cardiologist – Bay of Plenty, NZ

Title: General / Interventional Cardiologist

Location: Bay of Plenty District Health Board

About the role
We are looking for a Cardiologist to join our dynamic, innovative, and friendly team with a focus on the delivery of high-quality care to the growing population in the Bay of Plenty. Specifically, the Cardiologist will delivery, coronary diagnostic and interventional procedures along with general cardiology services as part of the team.

At the heart of our services are our CARE values – Compassion, All One Team, Responsiveness, and Excellence.

We wish to recruit an individual to join our thriving department of seven Cardiologists. Although a separate service, Cardiology is an intrinsic part of the acute and ambulatory medical services at both Tauranga and Whakatane Hospitals. Service delivery includes acute and elective PCI, diagnostic angiography, diagnostic cardiac physiology and outpatient consultation. The service is well supported by three Registrars, two Cardiology Nurse Practitioners, two House Officers, a cardiac catheter laboratory and cardiac clinical physiology, as well as radiological support.

We are looking for an individual to help innovate and integrate cardiology services across secondary and primary care: to help to grow the department, being aware of the increasing population and the growing ethnic diversity in the region. Improving health for our Maori patients is a key focus. You will have excellent communication skills and be interested in education with respect to patients, whanau (family) and the community, to strengthen and empower multi-disciplinary services to develop an integrated model of care.

Tauranga Hospital supports undergraduates from the University of Auckland School of Medicine across their clinical training and we, therefore, seek an individual who has the skills to foster a learning culture both in these students and also the postgraduate multidisciplinary staff. We have a great track record of supporting RMOs to compete for clinical postgraduate exams (FRACP) and there are many teaching opportunities.  The clinical school also provides research opportunities both for private research and hosting pharmaceutical trials.

Our team actively encourage work-life balance and the Bay of Plenty is ideally situated for those who like to work, rest and play – beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, excellent schools and vibrant social city culture.

Applicants must hold or be eligible for vocational registration with the New Zealand Medical Council.
