Sub-speciality interests are welcomed and can be catered for.

Southland offers superb lifestyle opportunities with skiing, tramping, fishing, hunting and stunning natural scenery right on your doorstep. Invercargill city is an easy place to live with close proximity to holiday destinations such as Queenstown, Stewart Island and Fiordland.

Southland Hospital is a teaching hospital outpost for the University of Otago's Dunedin School of Medicine. The Surgical Department teaches at all levels including 4th year medical students, final year students, House Officers and Registrars. Southland Hospital is looking to provide training to Training Registrars in the Urology pathway with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
