Wan came to New Zealand in 2009 and worked as house officer at Dunedin Hospital to help him acclimatize with the New Zealand healthcare system. He began his formal general practice education programme in 2012 and has been working as a GP since then. He divides his work time between Green Island Medical Centre and Milton Medial Centre. Outside of work, Wan’s biggest passion is travelling the world and learning other cultures.

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.
