Mr Alastair Hepburn

Urologist. MB ChB 2000 Otago; FRACS (Urol) 2014

Professional Profile

Raised and schooled in Cromwell. Spent the summers picking fruit as most kids growing up in Central Otago do. I then completed my medical degree in Otago. At this time I was a private in the NZ army (infantry) and played rugby for Southern. I then spent some years in the U.K. as a Forensic Physician for the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary. I then returned to New Zealand and started my formal surgical and urological training.

I completed my fellowship years in New South Wales before returning to Dunedin.
