Dr Mark Bevin
MB ChB 1980 Otago; FRNZCGP 2005
Mark has been in general practice in Dunedin North for over 30 years. He is known for his dubious sense of humour which is fortunately often forgiven by his patients, especially the elderly in which he has a special interest and fondness.He has stayed with Dunedin North Medical Centre from its inception into its current vigorous and expanding form as a modern medical centre. As well as special interests in minor surgery, aged care, and care of chronic medical conditions, he particularly enjoys the privilege of providing long term medical care to families across several generations. He is a regular medical attendant at several rest homes in North Dunedin and has active roles in professional medical associations.
Mark has undertaken additional training in Australia and New Zealand on the diagnosis and surgical management of skin cancers, and this is a regular part of his general practice work.
For relaxation he enjoys music, gardening and watching his grandchildren learn about the world. Particular musical highlights have been passing his piano performance diploma (DipABRSM) at the age of 58, and his 60th birthday concert at Opoho Church featuring his three adult children and friends, along with his own contributions of Gershwin and Brahms.
Mark participates actively in Opoho Presbyterian Church life, and supports the Dunedin Night Shelter and other community groups.

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.
