At Waikato Hospital, we have training positions at both SHO and registrar level, with a single application pathway for both.  On review of your CV and cover letter, we will determine whether you qualify for an SHO or registrar position.  Entry positions are at SHO level.  Trainees with anaesthetic experience rotating from elsewhere (including overseas) may apply at Registrar level.  

Applications must include a CV and cover letter, as well as a completed Midland Anaesthetic Training Program Checklist.  We require references to be submitted at the time of application; applications without completed references are severely disadvantaged.  Please upload this information to the DHB recruitment website (Taleo).  Referees who do not want to return references directly to the applicant for uploading are welcome to email their reference directly to the RMO service at Waikato Hospital in confidence.
