Our client, a 300 bed secondary hospital in New Zealand, seeks a full time, permanent Consultant Radiation Oncologist to become a member of a team of six Radiation Oncologists. The department requires the applicant to work as a general Radiation Oncologist although there is the potential to develop an area of subspecialty cancer interest. It is a teaching hospital and is associated with the Otago Medical School.
The Regional Cancer Treatment Service covers a wider area including Hawkes Bay, Whanganui and Taranaki with a total population of over 560,000. The Regional Service includes Medical Oncology Radiation Oncology and Haematology. Some travel is required in order to service the region.
The department has 4 Siemens multi-modality linear accelerators with MLC, EPI, cone beam and respiratory gating capability, CT simulator and superficial X-ray unit. The department currently uses a CMS Xio and Monaco planning system. There are well established and accredited IMRT and IGRT programs. Exciting linac and planning systems replacement will occur in the next three years.
The department is well supported with 3 registrars in training posts, specialist nursing staff, a palliative care team and a psycho-oncology service. There is a strong culture of multidisciplinary meetings and an active clinical trials portfolio. The department has “A” level accreditation (highest) with RANZCR as training centre for Radiation Oncology registrar training.
