There are exciting opportunities for Respiratory Registrars to join Te Whatu Ora Hawke’s Bay in full time positions. Applications are invited for the position of Respiratory Registrar – Advanced Trainee for next year commencing in February and/or August 2024.
The Respiratory & Sleep Department at Hawkes bay Hospital is a strong and growing regional service covering nearly all aspects of respiratory medicine. The Advanced Trainee post is now into it’s fourth year, and is accredited for 12 months of core respiratory training – contributing to the recent expansion of the department alongside new Consultant and Nurse Practitioner roles. We now have four permanent respiratory specialists ensuring continuous and varied specialist supervision and training exposure. This growth affords the successful applicant an opportunity to gain exposure to general respiratory and sub-specialty respiratory interests with scope to shape and develop the role whilst contributing to broader departmental activities. Our prior trainees have spoken highly of the role, and the volume and variety of training experiences that it offers. Prior trainees have secured further training positions in Australasian Tertiary Centres to complement their time with us and to complete their training following their post here.
Services include regular bronchoscopy lists, a busy pleural service (including placement of indwelling pleural catheters), and outpatient services across the breadth of respiratory and sleep medicine including local clinics for obstructive airways disease, a large lung cancer service, intersitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, TB and complex lung disease including post lung transplantation follow-up with network support from tertiary centres. There is a local education program for respiratory medicine, in which the trainee will actively participate, a local respiratory radiology meeting and interventional radiology service. We also participate in tertiary MDM for ILD and lung cancer. We (together with our radiology colleagues) provide support to complete ASUM certification in thoracic interventional ultrasound. Per New Zealand convention, Hawkes Bay Hospital can reimburses travel costs for relocation, professional and RACP training fees.
There is a newly updated and comprehensive pulmonary function lab including CPET with two experienced physiologists linking in to tertiary physiology teaching sessions weekly; provision of ambulatory sleep services; teaching of RMOs, nurses and allied health; developing models of care and liaison with community based support services. The trainee has the opportunity to undertake any/all bronchoscopies and a high volume of exposure to pleural procedures, lab activity, acute admissions to respiratory and specialist outpatient clinics, ensuring a good volume of clinical, practical and procedural exposure without having to compete for these opportunities with other trainees.
Hawke’s Bay has a diverse population of over 170,000 people in both urban and remote rural areas. Services are primarily provided at Hawke's Bay Fallen Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, Hastings which has a nearly 400 bed capacity - one of the largest provincial hospitals in New Zealand.
Through our values here at HBDHB, we are proud of our team’s diversity. We believe in the strength of a diverse and inclusive workforce, to help us achieve the best outcomes for our patients and the communities in which we operate and serve. Our values are He kauanuanu – Respect, Ākina – Improvement, Raranga te tira – Teamwork and Tauwhiro – Care.
We have no doubt that you’ll love everything Hawke’s Bay has to offer. Situated on the east coast of the North Island and a notable holiday destination within New Zealand, you’ll enjoy the stunning climate and beaches, a wide range of sporting and leisure opportunities, wineries, food and cultural activities.
