Requirements for applying for jobs in New Zealand

In New Zealand, all applications to assess international specialist qualifications must be submitted to the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ). 

If an application is accepted, the MCNZ will work with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists who will evaluate the ability of a specialist to practice as an unsupervised specialised anaesthetist at a standard comparable to that required of a Fellow of the College.  Therefore your first step is to contact MCNZ. 

Please refer to this link on their website: https://www.mcnz.org.nz/home/doctors-wanting-to-practise-in-new-zealand/   

The College also provides information on their website. Learn more.

The New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists (NZSA) represents medically registered Anaesthetists in New Zealand and promotes patient safety.

Our mission is to serve our membership through advocacy, education and strengthening the anaesthesia community, and in turn the wellbeing of patients. 

We are proud to represent anaesthetists in New Zealand and hope that if you do proceed with New Zealand registration you consider becoming a member.
