About the role
We have a vacancy for a qualified Pacing Cardiac Physiologist to join our Diagnostic Testing team at Southland Hospital on a full/part-time permanent basis.
Our Department is involved in a full range of tests including, ECG's, Holter monitoring, Exercise Stress Testing, Pacemaker and ICD follow-up and Echocardiography. This role would have responsibility for the care of around 800 patients with a full range of implanted cardiac devices but implants are limited to cardiac monitors only. We are looking for someone with a passion for teaching and this will be a large component of the role ranging from physiology trainees needing to learn the basics to supporting a team member looking to sit HRS. Southland offers a unique opportunity for someone either at the start or nearing the end of their pacing career and with no on site cardiologist you will need to be able to operate with a high level of independence.
When you join us you'll be supported by our experienced team of Cardiac Physiologists in our friendly department. You'll need to have excellent interpersonal skills and be a great team member with the ability to supervise and support junior colleagues.
You will need to have current registration (or meet registration requirements) with the Clinical Physiologists Registration Board and have the ability to gain an APC.
Our ideal candidate will have excellent attention to detail and great communication skills with team members and patients alike. The ability to cope with busy workloads and flexibility is a must.
The successful candidate must have the following:
- Hold a Post graduate qualification of IBHRE/NASPE or similar, or be currently working towards IBHRE
- Have evidence of ongoing CME and self-directed learning
- Ideally hold four years' plus experience in Pacing post registration
- Have excellent communication and organisation skills
