Dr Wei Tan

Emergency Medicine Specialist AdvDipMedSci MBChB FACEM PGCertCPU

Dr Tan has been in New Zealand for two and a half decades but originally hails from Malaysia (second generation Chinese born outside China). She came to our shores in 1998 intending to simply complete her medical training at Auckland University but has since found love, found her calling in emergency medicine, had a family, and has decided to stay. Dr Tan has worked in a number of hospitals across the country with most of her time spent in central North Island emergency departments. Her special interests include emergency cardiology, point of care ultrasound, and clinical education. In 2020, Dr Tan received The Peter Rothwell Clinical Teacher Award. She says that, besides the formal education, emergency medicine provides a constant teaching in humility. Outside of work you’ll find this mother of three enjoying the outdoors with her energetic family or indulging her passion for fine food.
