Dr Mark Edmond
MB ChB 2002 Auckland; FRNZCGP 2009
I was born and raised in Christchurch and obtained my medical degree at Auckland University. I then trained in bobsled and represented New Zealand at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City where I met my wife – a two-time Olympian in luge. I practiced medicine in Canada, Australia and around New Zealand before settling in my own practice in Christchurch for ten years.
I have a broad interest in all aspects of General Practice, but particularly in evidence-based Natural Medicine. I sub-specialise in fatigue disorders, minor surgery, relationships, working with athletes and injuries. I also have a keen interest in the science behind nutrient dense food. I am an elected fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.
I have been a regular visitor to Wanaka since I was a boy and moved here with my family in 2013. I love spending time with my wife, hence we have five children!

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.
