Kōrero mō te tūranga - About the role
- Intensive Care Registrar positions
- Starts from August 2023
- Wellington Hospital ICU
ICU registrars will primarily work within the ICU in Wellington Hospital, however we have rotation agreements with medicine and anaesthesia to allow ICU trainees to fulfil college training requirements. If you are rotated to a medical or anaesthetic run for your training this may involve working at Hutt or Kenepuru hospitals, both of which are within the Wellington urban area. If you are an existing registered trainee, the service will do their best to accommodate any training requirements stated within your cover letter.
RMO salaries are calculated based on relevant previous years of experience and the average weekly hours of work as set out in the relevant run description. For the current salary bands, please refer to either the Specialty Trainees of New Zealand (SToNZ) or Resident Doctors - Association (RDA) Multi-Employer Collective Agreements.

Wellington ICU provides tertiary Intensive Care services for a million people in central New Zealand, covering a geographic radius of 300 kilometres and including the upper South Island & lower North Island. We support six other public hospitals that have Intensive Care Units and one hospital that does not. To manage such a large area we run a busy Flight Retrieval Service with the capability to provide Intensive Care-level retrievals around the clock.
The ICU is a 24 bed unit providing general intensive care as well as supporting subspeciality services including cardiology & cardiothoracics, paediatric surgery, neurosurgery and trauma. Each bed space is equipped to provide either Intensive or High Dependency level care to both medical and surgical (post-operative) patients. Our service is strongly consultant-led and consultant ward rounds are performed three times a day on week days (8am, 4pm and 9pm) and twice a day during the weekend (8am and 9pm).
We admit almost 2000 patients every year of which 40% are elective (including approximately 600 cardiothoracic patients). Approximately 8% of admissions are paediatrics. The median length of stay for patients is 40 hours. For more information see the Wellington ICU website: www.wellingtonICU.com
