More about Jason
Dr Jason Tuhoe (pictured right) joins as the Board Apprentice saying it will give him the opportunity to build on his governance experience and help him to connect with wider aspects of the health and wellbeing community.
Jason is a GP based at Tokoroa Family Health and became a Fellow of the College in 2016, when he also delivered the Peter Anyon address at the Conference for General Practice.
Jason has been involved with the College in a previous governance role in 2017, when he was the Māori and Rural GP Representative for the Rural General Practitioners Chapter.
He has also held two other governance roles – Maori Representative for the Palliative Care Council of New Zealand and he currently sits on the Board of Te Whare Tāhuhu Kōrero o Hauraki, an iwi organisation that delivers wānanga reo (Māori language programmes) with a focus on the
Te Reo Māori me ona Tikanga o Hauraki – Māori language and customary practices of the Hauraki region.
Jason is particularly interested in teaching and believes it’s the only way to build a sustainable and long-term solution to general practice workforce issues. Jason currently mentors medical students at his practice and is in the process of getting certified as a teaching practice.
