My first degree is in medicine, and I trained as a doctor and worked in a hospital before moving on to complete an MBA and then, PhD in Management. I have worked in a hospital (doctor), a secondary healthcare organization (operational management) and in medical and healthcare publishing (editorial and general management), before working as a Lecturer at Massey University.
