Intensive Care Senior Registrar/Advanced Trainee

The Waikato Hospital Department of Critical Care is the largest single-site tertiary ICU that attends to all clinical specialties, from neurosurgery to cardiac surgery, plastic surgery and almost anything else imaginable, in New Zealand.

As part of our size and scale we have created roles for advanced trainees in intensive care, to span the gap between run-of-the-mill registrar roles, and the by now well-established fellow positions that prepare trainees for life as a specialist.

As an advanced trainee you will be required to carry out a mix of service and supervision roles, and will have some time set aside for non-clinical work. Your involvement in the roster will be weighted towards daytime participation. 

The positions come with a special interest arrangements negotiated with the interested candidates. The special interest positions available are: General ICU, Cardiac ICU or medical simulation. The trainees can interchange after 6 months into the other special interest group. 

We have a position available to start in December 2019 for six or twelve months. To be eligible you will need to have at least two years of ICU experience in a large and complex ICU environment, and you will need to have at least “part 1” of a fellowship examination (anaesthesia, intensive care, or similar) under your belt and PGY 4 or above.
