Dr Jennifer Brodie
MB ChB 2008 Otago; FRNZCGP 2016
I was fortunate enough to grow up here in Tauranga. I completed my undergraduate and medical degrees at Otago University and Wellington Clinical School followed by a period of travel and returned to Tauranga in 2008. Since returning I have worked at Tauranga Hospital for a couple of years then in General Practice since 2011.
I enjoy the variety that general practice brings. I hold a postgraduate diploma in Paediatrics from the University of Auckland and received fellowship from the NZ College of General Practitioners in 2016.
My spare time is mostly spent with my two young sons and our dog. I enjoy spending time at the beach, visiting local markets, reading, food, and travel.

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.
