Position: Interventional Cardiologist

  • Permanent, full-time Consultant role (1.0 FTE)
  • Whangārei, New Zealand
  • Join a growing team and service

Te Whatu Ora, Te Tai Tokerau is committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and holds stewardship for equitable health outcomes for Māori as Tāngata Whenua as the highest priority.

We are seeking an Interventional Cardiologist to deliver clinical care across Cardiology services in the Cath Lab and in outpatient clinics. This position will be one of three interventional cardiologists in Whangārei Hospital providing a thorough and comprehensive cardiology service. The service currently provides diagnostic imaging modalities; Cardiac MRI, CTCA & 3D echo. Pacing is not currently provided however we would be very open to hear from those with this type of experience.

Whangārei Hospital is the largest hospital in Northland, providing secondary care services across the region and supported by three rural hospitals in Dargaville, Kaitaia and the Bay of Islands. Whilst this position is pre-dominantly based in Whangārei, the successful candidate will also work in rural areas from outpatient clinics as needed. Currently there is no on-call commitment, however as we are a growing service, this will change once an inpatient service is established.

As an Interventional Cardiologist you will join a small but close-knit team dedicated to their patients. You will bring your specialist experience and embrace the challenges involved in developing the service to its maximum potential. You will be a motivated team player that is patient focused. You will play a key part in the development of the service in order to improve access to cardiac care for a region that has historically been undeserved.

To be considered, you must have or be eligible for vocational registration in an Internal Medicine (Cardiology) scope of practice with the Medical Council of NZ and have completed interventional cardiology training. Advanced cardiology training is essential and those with pacing skills would be advantageous to the growth of the service.
