General Anaesthesia in Middlemore Hospital

December 2020 - December 2021

3 x general fellowships


Middlemore Hospital is a busy 1000 bed facility, servicing a population of 750,000 comprising some of New Zealand’s most diverse communities. As a tertiary referral centre for major burns, orthopaedics, plastics (including hands), maxillofacial and general surgery, we are one of the busiest surgical centres in Australasia. A full complement of surgical subspecialties, with the exception of Cardiothoracic and Neurosurgery are represented. Obstetric services provide support for approximately 7000 deliveries, including a significant proportion of high complexity cases, per annum.

Our department consists of over 80 Specialist Anaesthetists (Anaesthesiologists) working over two clinical sites comprising 26 Operating Rooms. Rostering also includes provision of anaesthesia services to the radiology suite and national burns centre, in addition to leading acute pain rounds and preoperative assessment clinics.

Our clinical positions are ideal for provisional fellows or those with recent FANZCA admittance wishing to hone advanced clinical skills, and work towards gaining greater confidence in transitioning to independent consultant-led practice.

In addition to clinical rostering, sessions will be allocated for non-clinical and administrative activities. All fellows will be expected to contribute to departmental audit/research/educational advancement or quality improvement measures over the term of employment.

The clinical anaesthesia fellows work within a 1:7 roster for after-hours call.
