Three great reasons you should live in Canterbury

 
CANTERBURY OFFERS A RANGE OF SOUTH ISLAND HOSPITAL DOCTOR CAREER OPTIONS THAT ARE AS DIVERSE AS THE REGION ITSELF.

 

THE OPPORTUNITIES TO ADVANCE YOUR CAREER AS A NEW ZEALAND HOUSE OFFICER AND OBTAIN SOME INCREDIBLY VALUABLE EXPERIENCE ARE ALL HERE.

 

 
If you want to be a doctor in heartland New Zealand, you'll find the perfect job in Canterbury.

 

Largely farming-based, the province offers a huge range of attractions and activities. It stretches along the east coast of the South Island, from the sea to the snow-capped mountains.
Canterbury is noted for its sport, notably the Canterbury Crusaders rugby team, however the land and climate are such that anyone can get involved in the sport of their choice – from skiing to fishing, cricket to golf, and everything in between.
Geographically, Canterbury is truly diverse, with lakes and rivers, foothills and mountains, beaches and so much more.

There's something for everyone. From the seaside town of Kaikoura with magnificent wildlife including giant sperm whales, dolphins and fur seals, to the fast growing satellite town of Ashburton, gateway to some of the South Island's best activities, to the rural townships of Lincoln and Rangiora - you'll find exciting opportunities everywhere you look.

 

 

Canterbury is a diverse province. From rugged coastline to the majestic mountains, as shown here where the long flat drives through the "patchwork quilt" of farming fields of the Canterbury Plains suddenly head into the Southern Alps.
