The Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences aims to improve the health and
wellbeing of our local, national and global communities through excellence in
teaching, research and service.
Over the past years we have opened the award winning AMRF
Medical Sciences Learning Centre - Whakaaro Pai, seen significant enhancement of our Advanced Clinical Skills
Centre at Mercy Ascot Hospital, and commissioned a suite of new teaching rooms
and a large integrated teaching facility.
In 2009, the faculty opened the Centre for Brain Research, one of the largest
neuroscience research facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. These resources
will enable our students to fully experience the rewards of learning and
researching in a world-class academic, medical and health sciences environment.
The faculty now boasts some of the world’s most up to date research and
laboratory facilities, having completed a huge $240 million redevelopment of our
Grafton Campus through 2012. As well as providing our students and staff with
some of the world’s most modern research laboratories and support spaces, this
redevelopment allows our researchers to better collaborate across the faculty
and across the University on a thematic basis.
