The best of both worlds
Dr Pragati Gautama is a Dual Fellow: a specialist GP and a rural hospital doctor. The Dual Fellowship pathway allows you to develop a wide set of complementary skills and have lots of flexibility about where you work in the future. It normally takes five to six years to finish this training programme.
Dr Vanisi Prescott
Splitting her time between work at a suburban Auckland medical centre, and a day a week as the on-site doctor at Mt Roskill Grammar School, specialist GP Dr Vanisi Prescott loves the opportunity to get to know her patients. “You can get to know your patients over time, understand them and follow up with them. I have a lot of special interests, like youth health, sexual health, and cancer care, and being a GP lets me combine all of these.”
