Dr Joshua Tang

General Practitioner


MB ChB 2011 Otago


Born in Malaysia, Joshua came to Dunedin when he was still at school. As a Malaysian-born Chinese, he speaks English, Mandarin and some Malay.

He graduated from the University of Otago in 2011 and spent the next four years at Dunedin Public Hospital working in various specialties before deciding to train as a GP.

Joshua loves all aspects of medicine but especially the variety that comes with being a GP.

During his spare time, he plays the violin and piano, and is a member of the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra. 



Registration Date

12 December 2012

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.
