This month, we welcomed Dr Tara Muscovich from the USA and Dr Ali Malik from the UK to New Zealand. The doctors took up roles in Whitianga and Greymouth. It was a pleasure introducing Tara and Ali to the New Zealand medical system through our Orientation course which prepares them for their placements.

The three-day Orientation course is run monthly and is held at the NZRGPN office in Wellington. The course covers various topics such as introduction to general practice in New Zealand, ACC and introduction to Pharmac.

Saloni Pandey, our interim Project Coordinator had a successful first Orientation. She enjoyed getting to know the doctors over the three-day period, hearing about their travel plans and introducing them to New Zealand.
