Our client, a district hospital in an university city in New Zealand, is actively recruiting Emergency Medicine Registrars for their busy ED which is accredited for 12 months of Advanced Training by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine.
The hospital is an Australasian Level 4 regional trauma centre with approximately 44,000 presentations per annum. Both blunt and penetrating trauma with an average of 50 cases of ISS 15 or greater per year, as well as high acuity paediatric and adult medical patients are seen in ED.
It is an increasingly busy department and have maintained a 30+% admission rate. There is access to all medical and surgical subspecialties with the exception of cardiothoracic surgery and neurosurgery; patients requiring these services are transferred to Wellington.
You will find that there is very good exposure to critical procedures compared to other larger departments. You will also have access to excellent non-ED, accredited runs in ICU, paediatrics, and medicine.
The 9 strong Consultant group have trained in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and US. There are currently 5 FACEMs although this will be increasing again shortly. The consultant group has a strong commitment to education. There are weekly protected registrar-led teaching sessions as well as regular critical incident, clinical radiology, paediatric and orthopaedic teaching including access to Ortho Fracture Clinics. The department is proud of its exceptionally high Part I exam 1st pass success rate of 100%. There is also good support for clinical research, and the desire to expand this aspect of practise.
The fellowship preparation program is well established and there is capacity for part-time work when you are preparing for ACEM examinations. There are separate DEMT and WBA coordinator roles.
