With an unbeatable combination of professional and lifestyle opportunities for you and your family, the Southern district of New Zealand is an outstanding place to progress your career in health.
Be part of the Southern Future!
- Your energy and ideas are welcome here. We’re designing a new hospital in Dunedin, in the South of New Zealand, and creating an incredible opportunity to ask questions about how we want to deliver care in decades to come, and change things up.
- Learn with, and from, the best. Our partnerships with the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic and Southern Institute of Technology mean ongoing education, and links to research, are part of the culture of the health system.
Southland District Health Board is one of the biggest and most diverse employers in the Southern area of New Zealand and works in close partnership with WellSouth Primary Health Network and all our partners in primary care. We cover communities made up of 350,000 people in an area twice the size of Belgium, and our communities are as diverse as the people we employ and the work we offer. If you want to make a difference while living in a little bit of Southern paradise that offers access to stunning coastlines, snowy mountains, and bountiful lakes and rivers, come join us! You won’t regret it.
All of our hospitals provide offer superb lifestyle opportunities for health professionals and our rural hospitals offer unique opportunities for those with a rural health interest and seeking a rural town lifestyle for their families, whilst still being close enough to Dunedin or Invercargill Cities.
