Working as a Radiologist in New Zealand

Most positions are full-time with an on-call component that often includes additional remuneration.

Our hospitals have the latest, state-of-the-art medical equipment and a varied case mix including local and regional, general and subspecialty work. A mix of general and subspecialty trained Radiologists work closely together within a supportive team culture that is a strength of the services offered. We are always seeking expressions of interest from Radiologists including those with subspecialty experience in obstetrics and gynaecology, abdominal, musculoskeletal, oncology, breast screening and emergency radiology.

Some roles include a close relationship with a tertiary school and for those who have an academic interest there may be the option of clinical role combined with a medical school post. Some Universities’ radiology departments have several ongoing, research projects including MARS spectral CT working closely with the NZ Brain Research Institute. While not all positions include the possibility of a split role between clinical and academic, multidisciplinary research themes mean that some clinical radiologists work with clinicians, engineers and scientists on select appointments. Most of our needs are with our public health care system. However, we also recruit for a privately held breast screening clinic that offers work both within the private and public health care sectors. These roles often do not have an on-call component that some Radiologists find attractive. This private breast screening clinic offers a truly dynamic, enthusiastic, colleagial, committed team of Radiologists who thrive on the energy of the team and saving peoples’ lives.

Your ability to work within a multi-disciplinary team with other medical professionals from around the world is important. Our indigenous Maori as well as Pasifika people and migrants from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas makes for a truly diverse patient base to serve and support.
