1- Are all RMO/HMO jobs in New Zealand Accessible from this link? http://www.healthcareers.org.nz/CurrentRMOsApplyNow/tabid/392/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Or are there any other places ( websites, links etc.) to find vacant RMO/HMO positions?

2- In order to work under rotations ( i.e. 4 mandatory rotations ), should I necessarily get an Intern position? Or are there RMO/HMO ROTATIONAL positions in NZ?

3- Is this site:

http://www.healthcareers.org.nz/Default.aspx?alias=www.healthcareers.org.nz/ace

the main site for INTERN allocation in NZ? I am asking this because their info is outdated. For example they have not announced the opening date and closing date for 2011 internship allocation.

Take this link as an example for their outdated info: http://www.healthcareers.org.nz/ImportantDates/tabid/463/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Thank you for your time.

So the reason why the websites would look outdated to you is because all 1st year doctors (Interns) start their jobs at the end of November every year. A year is from November to November. Each rotation/run is 13 weeks long. In order to get their full registration they have to do at least two category A runs (as allocated by the NZ medical council. Such as General Medicine/ General Surgery) and 2 category B runs (Psychiatry/ENT/Cardiothoracics, etc.). They usually start applying for these jobs through the ACE scheme around May of their final year of school. NZ Citizens/Permanent residence are in the first pool of offers/allocations and then the remaining posts left over are allocated to the pool of IMG applicants.

You might try looking at the district health board websites of the towns you want to live in. If Auckland is what you are after then have a look at www.aucklanddoctors.co.nz.
You would need to have all your paperwork with the medical council finalized before any job would be given most probably. I'm really not sure of the exact process for IMG doctors getting jobs here, but because NZ has such a doctors shortage it must be pretty easy. Auckland district Health board also does a IMG specific program for working. Have a look at http://www.adhb.govt.nz/cetu/IMG.htm.

Oh and all RMO jobs in New Zealand are rotational. House officer jobs are for 3 months and registrar jobs are for 6 months as a rule of thumb.
