Dr Alice Armstrong
MB ChB 2002 Otago; FRNZCGP 2014
I studied medicine at Otago University. I graduated in 2002 and went on to gain experience in Rotorua and Fremantle Hospitals, working in a range of medical specialities.
I then moved into general practice in Rotorua where I have worked for a number of years before moving to the Eastern Bay of Plenty and joining the Ōhope Beach team. As a GP I get immense satisfaction from getting to know patients and their families. I have a particular interest in children and women's health.
I live with my husband, young daughter and son on a dairy farm and I enjoy lots of outdoor activities, including mountain biking, skiing and kitesurfing.

Yes (What's this?)
The term "vocational registration" indicates that this doctor has done some additional years of further study and has passed comprehensive examinations set by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. In addition to these examinations she/he has committed to an ongoing programme of study to keep up to date with the advances in general practice. His/her participation in this study programme is audited. Passing the examinations and the commitment to the study programme confers on this doctor the status of "specialist" in general practice, and is your assurance that this doctor is practicing to a high standard.
Doctors who are not vocationally registered can currently work in general practice as long as they are under the supervision of a vocationally registered general practitioner. The Medical Council of New Zealand would like all doctors who work in general practice to attain vocational registration and many doctors who are not vocationally registered are currently working towards achieving this qualification.
