Dr Jan Sinclair MB ChB 1988 Auckland; FRACP 1996
Jan grew up mostly in Northland and Gisborne before attending Auckland Medical School. She completed her paediatric training in Australia and Auckland before undertaking a fellowship in Paediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology through Baylor University at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. In 1997 Jan returned to Auckland as the sole specialist in Paediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Since then she has been delighted and relieved as the team has expanded to four specialist paediatricians and one nurse specialist. Jan was instrumental in establishing the Allergy Special Interest group within the NZ Paediatric Society, which now has involvement of paediatricians, nurses and dieticians from around NZ aiming to ensure availability of paediatric allergy services through all regions. She has served on the ASCIA council for a number of years and had roles in education of trainees in Allergy and Clinical Immunology across Australasia.
