Follow your heart. My husband took a 40 % in pay from the US but we have more money. It's the experiences that are priceless.

I know that there is a severe shortage in areas outside of Auckland and Wellington. You get extra points on immigration for taking work outside Auckland. Are you thinking North or South Island ?

There was an interesting article in the New Herald last week that talked about the job market for physicians from overseas is drying up. In fact it might be taken off the critical skills list. Graduating doctors here are having problems finding jobs upon graduation due in part to the flux of doctors from overseas.
That said, the article did not take into account specialists and experience level. If you think you want to come over, and work, contact a medical recruiter or HR at a medical center, they can give you details what they require .

Best of luck
