Dr Ann Horner
MB ChB 1998 Otago; FRNZCGP 2014
I moved to Dunedin from Hawkes Bay in 1991 to study at Otago University and completed my medical degree in 1998 after a few career changes.
I started working in General Practice after completing postgraduate studies on obstetrics and sports medicine. I enjoy working in General Practice - The diversity of General Practice ensuring ongoing interest and learning opportunities.
I particularly enjoy getting to know my patients and their families, and feel privileged to be a part of their lives as we both work towards attaining and maintaining good health.
When I’m not at work I like to be outdoors (preferably in the sun!) with family and friends, or curling up with a good book.

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.
