Neurological Foundation - Chair of Neurosurgery

Extra registrar for Dunedin neurosurgery

May 2011

The development of neurosurgery at Dunedin Hospital will include the appointment of an extra registrar, it was announced yesterday.

This is in addition to the three consultant neurosurgeons sought for the Dunedin hub of the new South Island-wide service.

Shortlisting of candidates for two of those positions, a full-time clinical neurosurgeon and a senior University of Otago lecturer, should be completed this week.
