With more than 630,000 people living in our district, Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB) has the largest - and second fastest growing - population among all district health boards in New Zealand. We have an ethnically diverse population with 10% Māori, 7 % Pacific, 19% Asian and the remainder being European or Other which includes Middle Eastern, Latin American and African.  This year the Northern Region has highlighted child health, healthy ageing and equity for particular attention. The WDHB promise is "Best Care for Everyone" which sets the standard for how we work together, and the value is "Everyone Matters' - every single person matters, whether utilising services, family member or a staff member. We are a teaching facility, with a well-established and highly-respected research programme.  Your experience and ideas will positively assist us as we grow, develop our future health workforce and support new models of care delivery.

The WDHB Health Gain Team is offering a placement from July 2019 for a Public Health Medicine Registrar to contribute to population health thinking and analysis.  Working in a District Health Board, Planning, Funding and Outcomes environment supports health sector development competencies along with the application of a range of other core public health medicine skills.
