Incredible Dermatology Practice Opportunity

Dunedin, New Zealand

A busy, established surgical and medical dermatology practice in Dunedin is being offered. The current dermatologist, Dr Matthew Strack, has worked in this practice for twenty five years. The practice is based at the Marinoto Clinic wing of the Mercy Hospital in Dunedin, and the office looks out to a large planting of native bush.

The practice is offered as a going concern. Currently a pulsed dye laser and a Qswitched laser are being operated within the practice and these could be negotiated separately. Patients are seen from a wide area encompassing much of the lower half of the South Island. There is strong demand for dermatology services in Dunedin and ample opportunity.

Dunedin offers many opportunities with excellent schooling and, of course, Otago University. Dunedin is also the gateway to Central Otago, where, as a family we have spent many happy summers.

A successful applicant would need to have New Zealand specialist registration as a dermatologist, or be close to completing such a qualification, or an equivalent qualification that would be recognised by the New Zealand Medical Council.

For more information please contact Dr Matthew Strack, Email:
