Post-Fellowship Training

Jenny's medical training began with university medical schools at Cambridge and Oxford in the United Kingdom. She completed basic surgical training in Oxford (FRCS 1998) before emigrating to New Zealand with her future husband in 1999, where she completed advanced orthopaedic surgical training in 2007.

Jenny returned to the UK for sub-specialist hand and upper limb fellowships at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon; the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford; and The Hand Clinic in Windsor. She became the first ever non-British trainee to be accepted for the prestigious British Diploma in Hand Surgery (BSSH Dipl. Hand Surg), which she completed successfully in March 2010.
