As Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, there is plenty for you and your family/friends to do here. Whether it's dining at one of our world class restaurants, surfing our beautiful beaches or hiking through our lush forests, we have something for everyone! Working as an Auckland Doctor means that you have the opportunity to rotate at any one of our three DHB's, which will give you exposure to a variety of different specialties and cultures.

So, we might be at the very bottom of the world, but our training programmes and facilities are on top!

Working as a Non SET Surgical Registrar

By joining the Auckland Region as a Non SET Surgical Registrar, you enter a programme with rotations through world renowned modern teaching hospitals: North Shore, Auckland City, Starship Children's and Middlemore and alongside many national programme selectors. All Auckland region hospitals are located within a 30 kilometre radius of each other. Come and experience our diverse demographic population and a variety of presentations and pathologies.

Auckland regional hospitals boast world-renown modern facilities and surgical teams. The full ranges of surgical specialties are covered, including those not found elsewhere in New Zealand. Many regional and national (as well as international) units are based here. These services also cover the entire age-spectrum from neonates to the elderly.

The Surgical Registrar position you are applying for is a ˜non-training' position in the Auckland region. Although not formally part of the training programme for sub-specialties (which is administered by the Australasian College of Surgeons), these positions represent the normal progression towards training in a sub-specialty.

These positions represent unique training opportunities to acquire skills, experience a variety of subspecialties unavailable anywhere else, as well as an opportunity to work alongside many influential members of the various surgical subspecialties. A single application gains access to all of the surgical hospitals in the Auckland region.
