Dr Kate Farmer
MB BS 2005 Queensland; FRNZCGP 2014
I am an Australian trained general practitioner, growing up in Brisbane and completing my Bachelor of Arts and medical degree at the University of Queensland. I have then worked throughout North Queensland including Cairns and the country hinterland.
I moved to Auckland in 2009 and have now settled here permanently. I have worked in general practice and in Family Planning in Auckland in between having two daughters. I enjoy all aspects of general practice but have a particular interest in women's health and paediatrics.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family in the outdoors, running around Cornwall Park (usually pushing a pram), surfing, kayaking and reading.

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.
