Want to make a difference in Emergency Medicine somewhere quintessentially Kiwi?

Is work-life balance important to you?

It’s about time! Nau mai haere mai ki te Tairāwhiti!

Tairāwhiti is one of the most beautiful, and sunny parts of Aotearoa New Zealand. With a population of just under 50,000 with approximately 80% in the city of Tūranga-nui-a-kiwa Gisborne the region is culturally rich and unique with a high proportion of Māori (55%).

While the rugged geography and dispersed population provide an ideal setting for outdoor pursuits such as surfing, cycling, camping and outdoor adventures, it also creates challenges and opportunities in delivering healthcare across the region.

He aha te mea nui o te ao? Māku e kī atu, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata

What is the most important thing in this world? It is people, it is people, it is people.

We believe in this whakataukī (proverb). It’s what makes us give our best for the people of Tairāwhiti every day. We offer a unique opportunity to join the Emergency Department at Gisborne Hospital.

In addition to bringing your Emergency Medicine expertise, you will be able to make a significant contribution to address inequities in health care.

You will become familiar with Te Reo and Te Ao Māori and play an important role in our mission to becoming more responsive to the needs of Tangata Whenua (the people of this land).

As the hospital expands, we anticipate other opportunities including leadership, participation in aeromedical retrievals, medical education and EM outreach services.

The Emergency Department has been recently accredited for training for Rural Hospitalist Medicine Training Program registrars and accreditation for ACEM training registrars is anticipated.

Many options of consistent surf breaks make it easy to get in a surf before or after work, or explore one of the many walking tracks, paddle a waka on the river, or ride the local mountain bike park! Gisborne also boasts a varied cultural scene, as the home of festivals like Rhythm and Vines, First Light Wine and Food, and Te Tairāwhiti Arts.

The influence of the region’s large Māori population is deeply felt in the language, art, and culture you can experience here.
