Dr Jodie O'Sullivan
MB ChB 1989 Otago; M 1997 F 1998 RNZCGP
I was born in Rotorua and went to Otago University where I completed my medical degree in 1989. I continued my post graduate training in Australia and the United Kingdom, returning to New Zealand with post graduate qualifications in General Practice and Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
I am married with three school age children and enjoy family time, the outdoors, films and books.
I have been working in General Practice for eighteen years and my special interests are Paediatrics and disease prevention.

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.
