General Practitioner – Stratford – New Zealand


Stratford is located in the Taranaki region on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Around 6.000 people live in this village and approximately 10.000 people in the Stratford region. This village is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and the beautiful nature that the North Island of New Zealand has to offer, as such visitors can see Mount Taranaki in the distance. Stratford offers the best access points to this iconic mountain. There are beautiful hiking trails through the abundant rainforest to waterfalls, wetlands and excellent vantage points.

This position is offered by a general practice from this village. Various teams, including a 5-member general practitioner team, a nursing team and administrative staff support the practice full-time. In addition, the practice is used as a training practice for registrars, so registrars often support the general practitioners.


On behalf of this general practice we are looking for a general practitioner for a full-time, permanent position. Minimum appointment is for 2 years.

The successful candidate will strengthen an experienced and enthusiastic team. Together with this team you will treat the population of the Stratford region. One of the doctors employed from the Netherlands has been working for some time at this practice and can guide the successful candidate at the start of the appointment. The population in this region varies greatly in ethnicity, which means that you will have to deal with a challenging patient population. You will also work in liaison with different specialists from different hospitals. Because the practice also functions as a training practice, part of the worktasks will consist of contributing to the training of registrars.

To properly fulfil the function you must have good communicational, social and administrative skills. Candidates with several years of work experience are preferred.

The employer offers attractive employment conditions such as support with your move to New Zealand and a competitive salary.
