As a US physician for 30 years the NZ Locums course was very helpful across the many different knowledge and skill domains needed for practice in NZ and especially rural NZ.

NZ Locums has been SUPER helpful in many aspects of my move to NZ – not just the job-search arena. Sarah Maguire has gone above and beyond several times over – without her knowledge and assistance, there’s no way things would’ve gone as smoothly as they did. I am so thankful for everyone’s willingness to help in any way they can! The orientation course was a helpful overview of the nuances/differences in the healthcare systems from my home country. Thanks for everything!

I think that the most difficult part of the process is the initial paperwork and getting the right information on the right documents at the right time. Whilst there are long periods of waiting, toward the last few weeks there is a lot to do. Forms are not intuitive especially for the NZ immigration. The team at NZlocums was very helpful in keeping the ball rolling and helping with queries. We felt that our relationships manager understood our needs and had a good handle on the situation. The orientation course was excellent. We felt that having already started our locum post, we knew what we needed to find out and were able to ask focused questions.

What a perfect experience for all of us. Thank you for placing me at that clinic and that town. I’ve made lifelong friends and hope to return one day. I’ve definitely referred other physicians your way. I have given you the highest recommendation! Thank you!
Dr Lat Dorfman | USA | April 2018
It has been great working with you all again this year, thanks for all your hard work on my behalf, both in finding me work, and then arranging me getting there, always with faultless efficiency, patience and cheerfulness.
I look forward to working with you in the coming year.
Dr Rob Nash | New Zealand | December 2016
NZLocums have been helpful and supportive from beginning to end. I would not have been confident about starting a locum post in New Zealand without their support.
Dr Tony Pearson | England | December 2016 - April 2017 in Northland, North Island
Very professional and helpful recruitment services, quick answers to emails.
Dr Jackelien Geerlings | The Netherlands | December 2016 - December 2017 in Stratford, North Island
NZ locums managed to provide a very organised and informative orientation course, in a very relaxed way. The variety of speakers ensured it never got tedious. NZ staff were very attentive and kind to all the new recruits.
Bernadette O’Shea | Ireland | December 2016 - May 2017 in Westport, South Island
I found this orientation programme very useful and relevant, giving a good insight into general practice in New Zealand. Topped off with a fantastic visit to Te Papa museum made it a valuable course.
Dr Christopher Mulholland | Scotland | September 2016 in Alexandra, South Island (Permanent)
A fantastic introduction to New Zealand General Practice, very informative and well organised.
Dr Kate Dixon | Scotland | September 2016 in Alexandra, South Island (Permanent)
Having the different government organizations come and speak with us about the services provided to people in New Zealand I now have more knowledge of what programs are available to help the patients I will meet.
Dr Michelle Cunningham | Canada | September 2016 - May 2017 in Oamaru, South Island
The orientation course was very helpful. Coming from the states, I had many questions about the New Zealand healthcare system and many of the topics were covered during this course. I feel much better about starting work in New Zealand after going through this course. It provided a very thorough overview of both day to day activities as well as a comprehensive framework for the healthcare system in general. It also provided an opportunity to ask questions regarding taxes and certain New Zealand laws that may differ from those in the states. I feel much better prepared to start my year in New Zealand working as a GP after this course.
Dr Lee Silkman | USA | September 2016 - September 2017 in Gore, South Island
NZLocums offered a great orientation course that made me feel much more prepared to practice medicine in New Zealand. It was a great opportunity to learn and meet other Locums.
Dr Dara Arons | USA | September 2016 - July 2017 in Westport, South Island
Thank you so much for your expertise in guiding me through this process, it made such a difference. I understand why NZLocums is so valuable as many doctors would be overwhelmed by the process without such guidance. Hope to see you when we return.
Dr Debbie Allert | USA | December 2015 - January 2016 in Amberley, South Island
Excellent service from NZLocums from initial contact, through to sourcing a position then providing the amazing training to allow me to start work in NZ. Would highly recommend.
Dr Fiona Megahy | Scotland | October 2015 - March 2016 in Raglan, North Island
