Dr James Bishop
I grew up in Ashburton, before coming to Dunedin for medical school. I then did my clinical years in Christchurch and first junior doctor year after graduating in 2010. I then came back down to Dunedin, to join my wife to be who is a Dunedin girl. A further 3 enjoyable years as a junior doctor at Dunedin and Wakari Hospitals followed this. I then started out in GP at the end of 2014, including nearly 4 years at the Mosgiel Health Centre.
In that time I have taken great pleasure in the longitudinal nature of general practice, getting to know and help people through the years.
In my junior doctor years I completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine, and have put that to use. I have been the Otago Mitre 10 Cup team doctor for 3 years, 2016-2018. A highlight has been being the doctor for the NZ Under-20 rugby team for their world cup campaigns in France 2018 and Argentina 2019.
Outside of work my wife and I are kept busy by my son who was born in 2019, and our giant dog Philly. I’ve played a number of sports to representative levels in my life, and these days concentrate my efforts on mountain biking.
I joined Broadway Medical Centre in 2019 looking forward to getting to know the patients and doing my best for them.
