Mō te tūranga | About the role
Southern is currently seeking applications from RMOs interested in joining our intensive care team at Dunedin Hospital. We are looking for enthusiastic senior registrars to join our team of registrars and senior house officers. Applicants will be in the later stages of critical care training, either preparing for or having passed a relevant critical care fellowship examination.
Use of non-clinical time is designed to facilitate the development of special skills such as research, echocardiography, teaching/simulation, management, or other areas of interest by negotiation. Senior registrars are also expected to contribute to registrar, SHO and nursing education where appropriate.
Southern Critical Care is mixed medical and surgical intensive care unit which provides exposure to trauma, neurosurgical, cardiothoracic, and some paediatric intensive care.
Our consultant and senior nursing staff are dedicated to providing high quality registrar education. We also offer a number of courses (link: https://dunedin.icu/courses) locally including BASIC, RACEplus and advanced critical care echocardiography courses, and 4i.
Dunedin Hospital has a strong collaborative relationship with the University of Otago, making a number of teaching and research options possible for those keen to pursue their academic careers.
The unit is accredited for Foundation training in intensive care medicine by CICM, as well as for ACEM critical care and RACP basic training. The run also provides invaluable experience for surgical registrars particularly prior to application for RACS training schemes.
