Our Purpose

The Canterbury District Health Board systematically plan, fund and deliver care to almost 600,000 people that live in the Canterbury region.

We are seeking a permanent, part-time Respiratory Physician with an interest in Sleep Medicine to join our team.

Appropriate qualifications/experience in Respiratory Medicine is a must, and a similar level of training in Sleep Medicine is highly desirable. You will also be a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians or equivalent.
