Kia ora whanau.
My name is Christina Gordon and I’ll be the Te Oranga Te-Whanganui-a-Tara Tuakana for 2017. Otaki born and bred, I completed a BSc in Physiology and Anatomy before entering Med School in 2014.
I chose Medicine as a career because I wanted to be able to continue with research, while keeping my options open for more person-person interaction, and to be more equipped to take care of my community in future.
At the moment I’m not sure where in medicine I’d like to end up, but for now I like the idea of Emergency or Surgery.
