How to Get a Job in New Zealand:

OB/GYNs may work in a variety of health care environments, from large teaching hospitals to family planning clinics. The mixture of work varies according to the practice choices of the physician.

Some OB/GYN doctors receive specialized training in gynecologic oncology and perform surgery exclusively. Many OB/GYNs practice both obstetrics and gynecology, often with the same patients. Others choose to pursue one of the two fields specifically; technically, obstetrics and gynecology are two separate specialties that we commonly combine since many doctors practice them both. Obstetrics and gynecology both focus on the health of a woman's reproductive organs, with obstetricians specializing in reproductive health during pregnancy and gynecologists focusing on the health of those same organs outside of pregnancy. -read more:

Medical residency training programs are considered a necessary part of a medical graduate students’ career not only because they provide hands-on practical experience in a clinical setting, but lead to a licence to practice medicine without supervision by a physician. However, the being accepted into a residency program is not a simple process. Residencies have been associated with long working hours (over 100+ hours per week), on-call shifts, sleep deprivation and poor pay (just over $10 per hour or around $40,000 per year).


There are many website on Internet where you can get all information related to how to get OB/GYN job in New Zealand. But i think you need to first get medical residency programs.
