At the first in a series of lectures celebrating the educational, medical and research successes over the past 50 years, 5 speakers from The University of Auckland will talk about the history of what has now become the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences.
About the talk: From small beginnings, we have transformed medical education and health care in New Zealand and beyond.
In 1968 the University of Auckland’s School of Medicine opened its doors to receive the first intake of 60 students. Since then our institution has developed into the multidisciplinary Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, with many thousands of students training in nursing, pharmacy, medical imaging, audiology, optometry, public health and medical science, with robust research profiles across all these areas.
In the first of our 50th Anniversary FMHS Lecture Series, proudly presented with our partner the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, our speakers will outline the historic milestones that contributed to the establishment of the Medical School and its evolution into the FMHS, today regarded as one of the most prestigious academic groupings in the country.
