  • Fixed term, full-time role

This is a full-time, fixed term position working with the Clinicians Screening Group within the Population Health and Prevention Directorate. The Ministry is offering a training position for a Public Health Medicine Registrar to join the group for a period up to a year. 

The Clinicians Screening Group provides public health, clinical and technical input into cancer and antenatal screening programmes and sits alongside the National Screening Unit (the operational arm of the screening programmes).

There are currently four Public Health Medicine Specialists in the group so there is plenty of opportunity to work alongside a number of colleagues.

There is much change afoot for the screening programmes and the person in this training role will have the opportunity to work in some challenging and interesting areas. There is an opportunity to get some experience with applied epidemiology and analytics if this is of interest.

Applications close at midnight on 30 April 2021.
