Do you have a strong commitment to provide high quality patient care based on education, research innovation and collaboration within the Christchurch Hyperbaric Medicine Unit?
Christchurch Hospital is the largest tertiary, teaching and research hospital in the South Island and we have one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Australasia, treating more than 75,000 patients a year.
The Hyperbaric Medicine Unit, Christchurch Hospital treats patients with chronic wounds, divers with decompression illness and a range of other conditions. We work as a team of 5 doctors with nurses and technicians providing day and on-call cover.
The chamber itself is a Fink multi-place walk-in chamber commissioned in November 2000 and we work to the Australia standard of AS 4774.2.
We are interested in hearing from Senior Medical Officers who are looking to branch out into a new sub-speciality. This role is for one day per week but can be increased to half time depending on the applicant. The availability of other medical work in Christchurch will depend on the skills of the applicant and appointments available but every reasonable support will be given if required.
This role may suit a hospital clinician or general practitioner wishing to develop a special interest at a senior level. Prior experience of diving or hyperbaric medicine would be an advantage but not essential. Further training will be expected and supported.
The positions provide opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. A research interest and strong evidence based medicine experience would be advantageous.
