How do I start my practice


The NZSA has developed a members only resource to provide information and guidance to anaesthetists who are considering private practice work, or are new to working in the private health sector.

Congratulations! You have completed your anaesthesia Fellowship training and armed with your piece of paper (and many more), you can now head into the wilds of private hospital work.  While this can be an exciting time, it may also feel daunting. We have produced a guide to make this transition easier for you and sought input from anaesthetists working in private practice. In developing this guide, we asked ourselves ‘what do I wish I had known before I started working in private?’
