Dr Heidi Conway recognised for her dedication
20 May 2018
Dr Heidi Conway has spent more than a decade taking care of people in the South Auckland.
She is currently working as a general practitioner at South Seas Healthcare, who have a high number of Māori and Pacific Island patients. Recently, she was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (FRNZCGP).
Dr Heidi undertook her vocational training in general practice through the RNZCGP at South Seas Healthcare starting as a GP Registrar during her GPEP 1 training.
“We are so proud of Heidi’s achievement,” says Dr Andrew Chan Mow Clinical Director at SouthSeas Healthcare.
“Heartfelt congratulations to Heidi for her achievement and we would also like acknowledge Heidi’s family for their support.”
However, obtaining the FRNZCGP in general practice didn’t come easily.
Dr Heidi had to complete a 3 year training programme comprising 10 months of basic vocational training, which involved 42 weeks of general practice training, leading up to the Primary Membership examination (PRIMEX).
This was followed by another 26 months of advanced general practice training (GPEP – Stage 2 (GPEP2,) which involved practising in a collegial relationship, undertaking a series of activities to assess her competence to practise independently, and a final Fellowship assessment visit.
The assessment of Dr Heidi’s eligibility for the Fellowship saw her awarded the FRNZCGP upon successful completion of these requirements.
Dr Heidi is now a member and fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners, the national body concerned with standards and education for general practitioners and general practice.
Heidi qualified with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the University of Otago in 1997.
