Dr Nick Giblin
MB ChB 1986 Otago; M 1996 F 1998 RNZCGP
Nick first joined the team at the Broadway Medical Centre in 1991.
He graduated from Otago Medical School in 1986. He worked at Dunedin Hospital and then went overseas for a couple of years. He then “temporarily” returned to Dunedin to work in Obstetrics and Paediatrics at Dunedin Hospital.
One night while working in Queen Mary Maternity Hospital (at about 3.00am)! Nick was cornered by Dr Paul Bennett who invited him to come and join him and Dr’s Brian Williams and Jack Chin at the yet to be built Broadway Medical Centre at 8 Broadway. When he started he had no patients of his own and had to build up his practice from scratch. Fortunately he had a lot of support from the nurses, midwives and doctors he worked with at Dunedin Hospital and this helped him get started.
Now Nick enjoys caring for many patients with a focus on keeping them healthy rather than simply dealing with their illnesses.
In his spare time Nick enjoys jogging and the benefits of living in Dunedin.
Dr Nick also also is a volunteer with Koru Care Otago. Koru Care is a registered charitable trust run by a team of volunteers who work together to make dreams come true for ill and disabled children. This usually involves an annual trip to the Gold Coast for a group of children that can require a high level of medical care. Doctor Giblin goes along to help the registered nurses and parents with any medical assistance they may need.

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.
