Starship Child Health is a leading provider of paediatric care in New Zealand and the South Pacific, providing world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency, and urgent care to children and their whānau. Starship is part of the Auckland District Health Board, New Zealand’s largest tertiary healthcare provider.

We are committed to delivering whānau-centered care that focuses on the needs of the child first and values whānau (family) as an important member of the care team. We seek to lead New Zealand in paediatric service delivery, in the provision of pre and post-graduate nursing education, and through the building of our reputation as a national centre of excellence in paediatrics.

Auckland is a challenging and rewarding environment in which to practice Paediatric Emergency Medicine as we see a broad range of childhood illnesses and injuries. The Children's Emergency Department is located in a purpose built facility with state of the art equipment and is staffed by a great team of health professionals. There are excellent opportunities to be involved in research, quality improvement projects and teaching, including high fidelity simulation training.
