We offer a variety of positions and are subject to availability.
First year (PGY1) House Officer
First Year House Officers are allocated to our District Health Boards (DHBs) via The Advance Choice of Employment (ACE) programme. ACE facilitate the application and recruitment process for New Zealand and Australian medical students applying for their first year House Officer positions throughout New Zealand. This means that PGY1 positions are not readily available for eligible candidates outside of the ACE process.
Our 3DHBs ask that ACE applicants complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) as part of your application process, but this is only needed if you are considering ranking the Wellington Region as a preference. By submitting an EOI, you are signing yourself up for a short phone interview conducted by one of our friendly Educational Supervisors. This phone interview will help you with the overall score we give you (should you be matched to our DHBs).

Second year (PGY2) House Officer
These positions are for House Officers that have completed at least their first year training.
It's important that you meet the registration requirements set out by the Medical Council. For information about your eligibility visit http://www.mcnz.org.nz. They also have a handy registration self-assessment tool that can help determine your eligibility.
Senior House Officer
Some services offer Senior House Officer positions that sit specifically within a service. These positions have their own application requirements depending on the service but at the very least, you would have completed two (2) years as a House Officer.
We have a number of opportunities for Registrars within our DHBs.
