Dr Kim Hurlow – General Practitioner
I grew up in rural Canterbury and studied medicine at Otago University, graduating in 2005. I have since worked in Auckland, Rotorua and Invercargill in various specialties, completing postgraduate training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (Women’s health) and working as a medical registrar, before doing general practice training and moving to Nelson.
I remember all those years ago being one of only a couple of entrants in my medical school class who wanted to specialise as a GP and have never wavered from this. I am especially delighted to be working in rural general practice! I love the variety and personal nature of general practice and the fact that we are continually learning and evolving in our understanding of the causes of disease/illness, as well as the way we can meet the needs of our community.
Wayne and I have been married for 10yrs and have two children, Corban and Talia, who keep me busy in the time I am not working. I also enjoy playing the piano (not particularly well), working on my home and garden, keeping active in our great outdoors and reading.
