Dr Pamela House
MD 1991 Central University of Ecuador; Am Bd Cert Fam Med 1996; FRNZCGP 2018
I am originally from Ecuador, born and raised in Chile but moved to Wisconsin USA for my GP specialty training and stayed there for 23 years. It was there I met my husband who is English and now we have two young daughters that are very excited to be in New Zealand. We decided to move here after visiting in 2012 and falling in love with such a beautiful country.
I enjoy preventative care coupled with Patient education. I like working with women, children and the elderly and look forward to seeing my new patients for their check ups and getting to know them better.
Our family loves the outdoors, tramping, swimming, sailing and traveling to experience different cultures and meeting the locals.
I love music, dancing, the movies and the arts, especially photography
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.
