Dr Maya Macfarlane
MB ChB 2001 Otago; FRNZCGP 2017
Originally from Christchurch I did the first part of my medical degree in Dunedin before completing it in Christchurch. I graduated in 2001 and have worked in various places in New Zealand and Australia since.
I did a Diploma in Child Health in 2005 and worked in many areas of the Hospital including Women’s Health, Geriatrics, Paediatrics and Emergency Medicine as a preparation for becoming a GP. I worked as a GP in two clinics in Christchurch from 2007 and moved to Dunedin and joined Broadway Medical Centre in 2013.
I decided to go into General Practice early in my medical career as I enjoy having more long term relationships with patients and working together to make the best informed choices for individual health care.
Outside of the clinic I keep busy teaching at the University of Otago Medical School and looking after my young family of two girls which fills up my spare time.
I enjoy travel and the outdoors as well as relaxing with a good book at home.

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.
