MB ChB 2009 Otago


I graduated from University of Otago in 2009 and worked at Waikato Hospital and Hawkes Bay Hospital before moving up to Tauranga in late 2013 for my GP training.
I was born in Taiwan and I moved to NZ with my family back in 1992. I lived in Te Anau (gateway to Fiordland National Park) for my high school years before moving to Dunedin for my medical education.
I have a special interest in women’s health and I have a postgraduate diploma in Obstetrics and Medical Gynaecology through University of Auckland.
My passions outside of work include traveling, photography, tramping and scuba diving.

Registration Date

14 December 2010

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.
