The Oral and Maxillofacial Department provides a tertiary service to the Central North Island of New Zealand. Hamilton is a level 1 major trauma centre and one of the largest tertiary teaching hospitals with over 600 inpatient beds and 22 operating theatres. Waikato is the major trauma centre for the region serving a catchment population of approximately 1 million.

The successful candidate will have the unique opportunity to grow and develop the OMS service, and will complement three colleagues to develop the full range of the specialty.

About the role:

Responsibilities of the role:
In this role, you will provide regional acute, elective and outpatient OMS Services, as part of a team of OMS specialists. You will work closely with ORL Head and Neck Surgery, Plastic surgery and Medical/Radiation oncology colleagues as part of a multi-disciplinary team responsible for providing complex head and neck oncology clinical services. You will also have an opportunity to work closely a growing Adult and Paediatric Hospital Dentistry service.

The current OMS team consists of 3 oral and maxillofacial specialists, 1 full-time training registrar, 2 non-training registrars and 5 maxillofacial/dental house officers. There is a varied acute work load (e.g. odontogenic infections, facial trauma), along with elective operating which includes dento-alveolar, orthognathics, both benign and malignant pathology and TMJ surgery.

Waikato is a leading training centre in OMS, accredited by the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. You will have the opportunity to participate in training. Research opportunities are expected to be taken up by the interested candidates.

As a 24/7 OMS service, our successful candidate will contribute to after-hours on-call on a 1 in 4 basis. You will be well supported and junior on-site cover is available with both house officers and registrars. Given the presence of trainees you will be encouraged to support their teaching and development alongside visiting medical and dental students.
