Dr Fiona Maclean
MB ChB 2003 Manc; FRNZCGP 2014
I studied medicine at St Andrews University, Scotland and at Manchester University, England, graduating in 2003. I completed my basic surgical training before electing to pursue a career in general practice.
Although born and educated in the UK, I am a New Zealander courtesy of my parentage. I moved “home” in 2012 with my husband and my two young sons and we feel privileged to live in such an incredible region.
I consider myself a true generalist, comfortable working within the full spectrum of general practice.
When off duty, I enjoy riding my horse and I try (but fail) to keep up with my kids on water and snow skis.

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.
