Dr Susanne Krueger’s Bio:
“I was born in Germany but moved to New Zealand aged four and grew up in Warkworth. I qualified in 2009 from the University of Auckland and then moved up to Whangarei where I worked for a couple of years at Whangarei Base Hospital.
I took some time off to get married and travel around Europe for a few months before starting my General Practice training at the end of 2012, during which I worked at Kowhai Surgery and Wellsford Medical Centre (Coast to Coast) for two half-year placements.
I enjoy the variety that General Practice brings and the opportunity to have an ongoing relationship with patients.
Outside of work I like horse riding, gardening and enjoying the outdoors that this great area has to offer.”

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.
