Our general fellowship with subspecialty interest in Obstetrics, is unique and challenging given the complexity of the population we serve in terms of tertiary referrals, work load and our patient population diversity and socio-economic background. Strongly supported by an experienced and dedicated body of obstetric anaesthetists our obstetric fellow enjoys unparalleled exposure to elective and acute obstetrics, labour suite, high risk obs clinic and teaching opportunities.
The work load and complexity of our hospital and patients respectively offer a fantastic platform for our general fellowship with subspecialty interest in peri-operative medicine. Working regularly with our pre-assessment clinic team, our peri-op fellow will also be exposed to our anaesthetic-led-echo-service, tailored medical speciality clinics, ward pre-op review and various pain rounds and clinics. With potential for further development, this fellow position presents a unique opportunity.
Our general anaesthetic fellowship with a subspecialty interest in burns is unique and encompassing experience.

Within a small but dedicated group of multidisciplinary specialists, our burns fellow is exposed to acute and chronic burns, teaching, journal club, research opportunities, complex/chronic pain as well as involvement with the general roster and the other services provided by Counties Manukau Health.
