Job Description Applications are invited for an Internal Medicine Physician role at Dunedin Hospital for a period of 12 months.

The Internal Medicine Physicians contribute to the professional development and supervision of the supporting team of Registrars, House Officers and students at Dunedin Hospital. Teaching sessions are a regular feature of our department and include formal lectures, weekly journal club, medical forums, grand rounds and audit meetings. The Physicians pride themselves on providing excellent Registrar exam preparation courses and enjoy a nearly 100% success rate.

The successful candidate will have a broad Internal Medicine background and will be expected to participate in a 1 in 8 on call roster.
