Tiffany Hodgson is the longest-standing PA in NZ and has been working in the Waikato since 2010, currently at Cambridge Family Health.
She assisted Health Workforce NZ with recruiting practices for the second PA demonstration in general practice and emergency medicine and became a founder of the NZ PA Society in 2014.
