Dr Maud MD is Dr Maud Meates-Dennis. She graduated from Otago University, New Zealand, with MB ChB (MD equivalent in North America).
After working in internal medicine as a registrar (resident), Maud worked for 6 months in Ethiopia during the 1985 famine. The experience she gained there is unrivalled and it fueled her desire to continue working with children.

Maud returned to New Zealand to start a career in Paediatrics. She started her post-graduate paediatric training in New Zealand and then completed it in London (at the Royal London and Royal Free Hospitals and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children). Her post-graduate qualifications include FRCPCH (Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health) and FRACP (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians).
Maud has worked as a paediatric consultant (specialist) in hospitals in London and New Zealand. She is a general paediatrician and has a wide range of experience in both inpatient and outpatient paediatrics and community child health. Maud has a special interest in ambulatory services and has worked with children with HIV, diabetes and rheumatological conditions.
Maud is a keen teacher and regularly teaches medical students, nurses and junior doctors during their paediatric training. She also teaches multi-disciplinary groups how to practice Evidence-based Child Health (most recently on courses held at the Centre for Evidence-based Child Health at the Institute of Child Health, London).
Maud is from a large family and has family living in the United States, England, Australia, and New Zealand. Maud provides medical information to her family about their babies, toddlers and older children. Many of the questions they have asked are now pages on this site.
Maud is married and has 2 stepsons and a beautiful grandson.
