An excellent opportunity to join the pathology team of a regional hospital in one of New Zealand’s most beautiful areas. The two person haematopathologist team is based in a regional hospital catering for a population of almost 200,000 which provides secondary level services with 24/7 emergency department and full complement of services in general medicine and surgery and subspecialties, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, psychiatry, radiology, anaesthesia and pathology and is supported by three regional hospitals.  There is a well-developed intensive care unit to support significant surgeries and the critically ill. The hospital is supported by three regional small hospitals in rural areas. It has an outpatient haematology /oncology centre and, despite the relatively small size, the pathology seen here is remarkable and makes for stimulating work as a pathologist. As a haematopathologist you will be covering both the haematology lab and the blood bank (with support from the NZ Blood Service).

The vibrant, dedicated technical and support staff as well as the engaging relationships shared with o clinical colleagues foster an exceptional work environment. The size of the hospital and regular interdisciplinary meetings allow for a close collegial working environment.  A generous CME allowance facilitates on-going training.

The successful applicant will have comprehensive experience and training in diagnostic and consultative haematology services.  You will be proficient in performing and reporting bone marrow biopsies and have a sound knowledge of transfusion medicine.  Participation in the after-hours on call roster is required.

This permanent 1.0FTE position would suit either new fellows, with appropriate qualifications, or experienced pathologists.

You would ideally be a fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (in Haematology), and hold, or be eligible to hold Vocational (Specialist) Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.  You can assess your eligibility by going to https://www.mcnz.org.nz go to Registration - Self Assessment.

The province boasts a subtropical climate and some of the most scenic and exciting coastal areas in New Zealand.  There are opportunities for outdoor activities, including surfing, diving, fishing, hiking and biking. On-site, there is a well-equipped staff gym and an open-air pool. Whangarei itself has all the convenient amenities of a modern, small city but the Auckland metropolis is only two hour's drive away for those special weekend activities.



  • Qualifications: FRCPA or equivalent qualification recognised by the Medical Council of New Zealand for vocational registration.
  • License: Vocational Registration or Eligibility for Vocational Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand
  • Language: fluent English (IELTS Academic Module 7.5 average for non native speakers)
