Join our fellow 615+ Resident Medical Officers employed by Capital, Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa District Hospitals to gain leading experience, medical supervision and training.
Wellington Regional and Kenepuru Hospitals
Wellington Regional Hospital is a major regional teaching centre and tertiary hospital for a population of 900,000. We see a challenging and varied mix of cases that cover cardiothoracic, vascular, paediatric and neurosurgical anaesthesia. We have 15 main operating theatres that provide anaesthetic services in, addition to delivery suite, radiology and radiotherapy. There are four additional theatres at Kenepuru Hospital, which accommodates a higher proportion of day cases. There are both acute and chronic pain services and dedicated anaesthetic pre assessment clinics. SHOs and Registrars attend weekly teaching sessions targeted at their level of training, which includes use of a high fidelity simulation centre.
Anaesthesia trainees may also rotate to the Wellington Regional Hospital ICU for 6 months, which is a busy and highly regarded unit that is accredited for training towards FANZCA and FCICM.
Hutt Valley Hospital
Provides for experience of anaesthesia for burns, plastic and maxillofacial surgery as well as general surgery, orthopaedics, obstetrics, gynaecology, ENT and ophthalmic surgery. You will need to cover our on call roster, so it is vital that you have successfully completed ANZCA introductory training, or equivalent. Registrars attend the teaching session at Wellington Hospital that is relevant to their level of training.
About the Central New Zealand Rotational Anaesthetic Training Program
The Central New Zealand Rotational Anaesthetic Training Program involves collaboration between Wellington, Hutt, Palmerston North, Hawke - s Bay, Whanganui and Nelson Hospitals. The program has approximately 57 registrar positions, and provides all five years of vocational training required for Fellowship to the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthesia (ANZCA). Our program provides seamless training from Introductory Training through to completion of anaesthetic training, and appointment to a rotational training position within the Central Region provides opportunities for all the training needs for FANZCA.
To facilitate trainees being able to return to Wellington for their advanced training runs, it is expected all trainees will complete the majority of their basic training outside of the Greater Wellington Region. In practice, this means that if you start your Introductory Training in Wellington it is expected that you will rotate to Hawkes Bay or Palmerston North after 6-12 months for the next 12-24 months. Registrars in the rotation have a high success rate in the ANZCA examinations, typically sitting the Primary Examination while at Hawke - s Bay or Palmerston North Hospitals, and then the Final Examination when at Wellington or Hutt Hospitals.
We hold weekly training sessions for all our SHOs and registrars, as well as an annual Part Two Course in Wellington.
Please indicate if you are applying for the Central NZ Anaesthesia Rotation in your covering letter. If you are applying for the rotation, please note that information will be shared amongst the participating hospitals (Palmerston North, Hawke's Bay, Nelson, Whanganui and Hutt hospitals). In addition, the information will be shared at a national teleconference where co-ordination of anaesthetic trainee placements within the four training rotations takes place annually.
By submitting this application you agree to this information being shared, unless you object in writing.
