DR Jin Adamson
MBChB, Dip Paeds
Having completed med school at the University of Auckland I worked in a variety of hospitals across the country before moving to Christchurch shortly before the earthquakes.
Here I trained for several years with the hardworking Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department until relocating to Edinburgh, Scotland with my husband whilst he completed his specialist cardiology training and PhD. In Edinburgh I worked for the NHS in general practice and hospital specialties, gaining valuable experience in another health system and have come to appreciate what we have in New Zealand.
Following the birth of our two daughters we returned to Christchurch to be closer to family.  I joined Cashmere Health after completing the trifecta of children and I am delighted to be working for the community I live in.  I have a Diploma in Paediatrics with distinction but nothing has given me more hands on experience than my 3 children!
Since working in general practice I have come to appreciate getting to know my patients both young and the elderly with more complex needs and aim to build a patient centred therapeutic relationship.
I also speak and understand basic Korean.
Outside of ‘adulting’, I would like to get back to horse riding and learn to sew or sing.
