Ewa Strick

ewa-strickTowards the end of my Anaesthesia training in New Zealand, I spent 18 months in Gasgow UK covering some general adult Anaesthesia, as well as a stint at Yorkhill Children's Hospital.

On my return to New Zealand 10 years ago, I took up a Consultant Anaesthetist position in Hamilton, working as one of six (now eight) Paediatric Anaesthetists in a Department of more than 40 Consultants. My practice involves approximately 50:50 adult:paediatric patients. My main interests include ENT, General and neonatal Paediatric surgery and Paediatric Plastic surgery. I feel honoured to be part of another ORH mission to the Philippines this year and am looking forward to it immensely.
