Kia ora, I’m Tesa Meihana. I grew up in Ngongotaha, Rotorua. I am married to Jamie Meihana (Ngai Tuhoe, Ngati Whare), and we have 4 children together.

I graduated from Otago University in 2010 with a science degree in Genetics in addition to my medical degree. In 2018, I became a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners.

I am Medical Educator for the Royal New Zealand College of GPs where I do in-practice assessments around Aotearoa for Year 2 and 3 Registrars. On top of this, I am a Distinguished Fellow for the University of Auckland and supervisor of Medical Students Year 4-6.

I also have a role on the Royal New Zealand College of GP, Board of Studies where I am a representative for Te-Akoranga-a-Maui.
