General Practice Education Programme

This practice is a teaching practice for general practice registrars. GP registrars are doctors who have already completed at least eight years of medical training and are going on to specialise in general practice.

They will come to this practice for a five month period to gain practical experience under the supervision of one of the following qualified teaching doctors:

  • Dr Bala Newton
  • Dr Nishkala Pasupati
  • Dr Asit Parekh

Our current registrar is Doctor Keegan Edwardson

What does an appointment with a Registrar mean?

If you decide to consult with the Registrar you are making an important contribution to the education of New Zealand doctors and we appreciate your support. However, the choice to see the Registrar is entirely voluntary and you are always free to see your own doctor if you prefer.
