• Why have so many overseas Doctors chosen to make New Zealand their home?

    Is it for the unspoilt beauty of the beaches, snow-capped mountains and regional parks? Yes, it is probably hard to resist the healthy (and safe) outdoors lifestyle and all the excitement and convenience urban centres have to offer: fabulous food, arts and culture, sports, museums and everything in between. New Zealand is home to some of the world’s best beaches, skiing, mountain biking and other adventure activities. Add these to a world-class health system and excellent training opportunities and you have an unmissable opportunity. 

    Not only this, but everything is within an easy distance, making it possible to disappear to world class holiday destinations just for a day or a weekend. And in case you are thinking of starting a family, New Zealand is also a great, safe place for children, with so many recreational activities and a world-class education system

  • New Zealand is a nice holiday destination but it doesn’t offer the best training programmes and technologies…

    New Zealand’s health sector is internationally recognised as a provider of high quality, trusted services that are delivered cost-effectively and which successfully compete  with some of the most technologically advanced countries (Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States) in terms of overall health technologies, quality of care, coordinated care and patient-centred care (according to the Common Wealth Fund). UNESCO ranks New Zealand third highest in the world for the number of science graduates produced as a proportion of the population. Two excellent medical schools at the University of Auckland and the University of Otago have an established reputation for world-class research and for developing innovative processes and technology tools. Their MBChB programme is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC).

  • Is it possible to obtain a position in the Auckland Region?

    Auckland has the highest population density and therefore employs the most number of Medical Graduates.

  • I will be in competition with NZ graduates who have been interns for a year…

    All ACE RMO applicants are required to rank a minimum of 6 employer's. As such, New Zealand graduates are also competing with other New Zealand graduates who have completed their internship here, thus, ALL ACE RMO applicants compete with each other.

    And don’t sell yourself short. A great application can be very powerful!

  • Why should I complete a lengthy application when my chances at being matched are so low…

    The ACE RMO application has been continually streamlined over the past 16 years since its conception. It is an incredibly simple and time-effective way to submit one application to all employer's. Just imagine if you still had to submit 20 individual applications like your predecessors did!?

    The environment surrounding the employment of Medical Graduates into Te Whatu Ora Health NZ is ever fluctuating, and as Australian Citizen’s/Permanent Residents with no Visa requirements to work in NZ the chances of a Match remain good. But you can’t win the race if you’re not in it!
