What is the New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association?

We are a union; a group of employees who come together to achieve strength and safety in numbers. The New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA) is the principal organisation in New Zealand representing the interests of all Resident Medical Officers.

We are run by resident doctors for resident doctors. Our main purpose is to look after and to promote the interests of our members. This includes taking care of doctors’ rights and your interests at work, within the health sector and in the wider community.
