First Year House Officers

First year House Officer applicants need to apply through ACE (The Advanced Choice of Employment). This scheme is a national internship matching process to appoint first year House Officers (Post Graduate Year One's) throughout New Zealand.

The ACE matching scheme is coordinated nationally for all of the District Health Board (DHBs) in New Zealand and runs alongside DHB annual recruitment processes for RMOs. All applicants wishing to apply for a first year House Officer position in New Zealand at the beginning of the training year, must apply through the ACE scheme by clicking HERE.
