Profile

Cameron spent his childhood growing up in the mighty Waikato. On completion of his schooling, he went on to attend Auckland Medical School. During his medical training Cameron took opportunities to experience life living around various parts of New Zealand and overseas whilst completing his studies. The most enjoyable place he lived was a three-month stint in the Cook Islands where he served caring for New Zealand’s fellow Cook Island Māori.

On completion of his Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Medicine (MBChB), Cameron took a post at Tauranga Hospital as a junior doctor. Here, he completed his post-graduate training and completed a Diploma in Child Health (DCH) through the University of Otago.

Cameron fell in love with the charm of Tauranga, and ended up getting married to his wife in the hills of Ohauiti. Recently, Cameron welcomed into the world his first child, and now spends lots of his time with his young family. He enjoys outdoor pursuits including paddleboarding, tennis and mountain biking, he also enjoys creative activities and dabbles in classical guitar.

Cameron has a special interest in men’s health, child health and healthcare equity.

Cameron is based at our Bethlehem clinic, but does rotate into our other clinics periodically.

Registration Date

25 November 2016

Vocationally Registered

No (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.
