  • Placements are available for 12 months

There is an exciting opportunity for a public health medicine registrar to join IMAC for a period of 12 months. The position is based at Auckland University's Grafton campus with potential for working in Wellington. The successful applicant will gain experience in applying public health principles in our work to reduce vaccine preventable disease throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand and provide evidence-based advice on vaccines and immunisation vaccination policy.

We welcome opportunities from suitably qualified Māori and Pacific candidates.
