To work as a doctor in New Zealand, you must be registered with the Medical Council however; you will first need to find employment. We will not register a doctor unless they have a job offer from a New Zealand health service provider.

You can find employment by contacting:

  • any of the 20 District health boards in New Zealand who will often advertise vacancies directly on their websites.
  • a branch advisory body or college
  • one of the medical recruitment agencies
  • searching the Kiwi Health Jobs website which provides a one-stop-shop if you are looking for a job in New Zealand's public health sector.

Contact a District health board

Contact a medical recruitment agency (google search)

We recommend you read our 'Get Registered' information prior to contacting us.
