Dr Elaine Pooler

General Practitioner

Qualifications

MB BS 1992 Lond; FRNZCGP 2014

Profile

I qualified from St.George’s Hospital Medical School, London, in 1992. Emigrated to New Zealand in 1993, initially spending several years in Auckland and Invercargill, before settling in Tauranga in 2001. Since then I have worked, enjoying patient-centred family practice, at Te Puke Medical Centre.

Outside of work, I enjoy time spent with my partner and 2 young sons on beach walks, cycling and kayaking;  trying to keep the garden under control and beat the bugs to the fruit and veg.

Registration Date

26 August 1993

Vocationally Registered

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.
