Dr. Karin Burcher


Originally from the Hutt Valley, Karin studied medicine at the University of Auckland, graduating in 2007.

She and her husband Sam spent 4 years working in hospitals around the country before completing their GP training in Queenstown and Dunedin.

Karin worked as a GP at Masterton Medical for 4 years before joining Ropata in 2018. She continues work at their Marae based clinic, a job she loves. She particularly enjoys women’s and child health and holds postgraduate qualifications in both.

However, most of the time Karin can be found running around after her 3 young children and drinking plenty of coffee to keep up with them.
