Cardiothoracic Non-SET Registrar
Applications are invited for the 2024/2025 year for non-SET Registrar Positions (2yrs+ Post Graduation) at Waikato Hospital.
We are seeking doctors who have an interest in pursuing a surgical or critical care career pathway. Candidates who have completed two years post graduate hospital experience including a variety of surgical experience will be considered. This is an excellent opportunity to experience cardiothoracic surgery whilst working in a supportive environment.
Waikato Hospital is a teaching hospital and a major tertiary referral centre providing specialised and emergency healthcare for ~ 1,007,000 people in the Midland and Waikato area.
The Waikato cardiac unit performs over 650 open heart procedures a year with active TAVI, aortic and complex cardiac pathways and around 200 thoracic cases with active thoracoscopy services, including uni and multiportal access.
The successful applicant(s) will be required to:
- manage outpatients and inpatients in the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department under the supervision of the Cardiothoracic Surgeon
- participate in the on-call registrar roster
- participate in departmental meetings and be involved in teaching
- conduct research and quality improvement projects
Our registrars are expected to involve themselves in divisional research activities and prepare presentations for research events. Our preference is to offer 12-month positions as this gives our registrars enough exposure to the specialty and to complete the necessary research projects to improve their CV.
