Dr Tania Hingston
MBBS (Hons) FRANZCOG

Tania is a Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with interests in normal and high risk obstetrics, vaginal surgery and ultrasound.

Tania achieved her medical degree with first class honours from the University of Tasmania (UTas MBBS Hons) in 1998, receiving the University Medal for the highest graduating student. Her initial obstetrics and gynaecology training was at the Royal Hobart Hospital, followed by three years in Melbourne. During her training in Melbourne, Tania developed a special interest in high-risk or complex pregnancies, gaining experience in both maternofetal medicine and ultrasound. Tania completed her gynaecological training in North West Tasmania, where she continued to build her interest and skills in vaginal surgery. She obtained her specialist qualification (FRANZCOG) in obstetrics and gynaecology in 2009. During her training Tania was awarded the RANZCOG medal for the highest mark in the O&G specialty exams in Australia and New Zealand.

Tania has spent the past 5 years working as a Specialist Obstetrician Gynaecologist on the North West Coast. During that time she has established and conducted both a diabetes in pregnancy service and a high risk obstetric service, while maintaining her gynaecology practice.

Tania has been responsible for developing and delivering the obstetrics and gynaecology curriculum for the UTAS medical students at the Rural Clinical School in Burnie over the past 5 years. She is also active in RANZCOG activities and is the immediate past Chair of the Training and Accreditation Committee, overseeing registrar training in the state.

Tania is married to Jarrad Wilson, also a Tasmanian medical graduate. They have two amazing children, James and Evie. Tania enjoys spending time with her family, reading and cooking, and having a sleep in when the opportunity (infrequently!) arises.

Tania is very excited to be embarking on this adventure with Kirsten, which has been long in the planning. They both share the same sense of humour, same approach to medicine, and same clinical and life values. And they are close friends, reflected in how well they work together.
