Tauranga is New Zealand’s fastest growing city and as a result it is time for us to grow our team of Psychiatrists so we can continue to provide a high level of care.

Tauranga is a vibrant city and the surroundings are spectacular with beautiful beaches and wilderness areas all close by and the Coromandel and Auckland are an easy drive away. There is outstanding access to outdoor recreational opportunities and a wide-range of schooling options, both public and private, an Institute of Technology and a recent addition is a University of Waikato Campus. Lifestyle options are diverse and you can live 20 mins from the hospital on a lifestyle block, in the bush, on an estuary with a boat or kayak in the garden or in the trendy Mt Maunganui.

We can offer:

  • A well-established group of peers for you to join.
  • General Adult Inpatient and outpatient services, Psychogeriatrics, Consult Liason, Child and Adolescent, Drug and Alcohol and Maternal Mental Health services.
  • We are a teaching hospital with Psychiatric Registrars Training through the Upper Central North Island (UCNI) training scheme and 5th and 6th year medical students through the University of Auckland.
  • Opportunities for research and teaching roles through our clinical campus and close links with Auckland University.
  • Opportunities for involvement in service development and clinical leadership.

If you like to work in a team that puts the patient at the centre, and is collaborative, creative and collegial, and you have FRANZP or an equivalent qualification, please consider this your next job. The Bay of Plenty District Health Board CARE values of Compassion, All-one-team, Responsive and Excellence should also align with your values.

Requirements:

  • Vocationally registered psychiatrist with The Medical Council of NZ or eligible for this.
