Dr Narimahn Bahrinipour
State Exam Med 2009 Giessen
Dr Narimahn Bahrinipour was born and raised in Germany where he also completed his medical training and worked as a General Practitioner.
He is married to a New Zealander, and his family connections with our beautiful country have led him to recently move his permanent residence from Germany to Whangarei, where he is now living together with his wife and three children.
In his spare time he enjoys travel, exploring the great outdoors, gardening and sports.
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.
