Our ability to recruit, retain and grow the very best students and staff holds the
key to allow both the faculty and University to deliver on its mission of improving
the health of New Zealanders through excellence in teaching, research
and service. Partnerships with friends and supporters significantly enhance our ability to meet
Undergraduate and honours student scholarships
and, in particular, the Bachelor of Science (Biomed) programme, helps us to identify the best candidates
for postgraduate studies and research. By establishing appropriate student scholarships,
we believe we can recruit and retain the best of these talented students.
We face increasing difficulty recruiting the next generation of clinicians
and research scientists. Financial contributions towards these scholarships enable
us to attract high-achieving students, many of whom go on to build very successful
careers in the faculty.
Repatriation or emerging
Guaranteed support for two-three years will enable us to attract
early and mid-career Kiwi researchers back to New Zealand. A Repatriation Fellowship
will allow young researchers to undertake finite and specific research projects
and support them through the early years of their research careers back in New Zealand.
This area of support is becoming of increasing importance to us in “future proofing”
our academic capabilities.
Research and clinical chairs
The importance of high calibre leadership for the
faculty and University through
our ability to recruit leading academics to professorial roles is self-evident.
To ensure that we are able to meet the challenges facing healthcare in New Zealand,
Australasia and beyond, we need help in ensuring we can provide the support required
for our professors to build academic teams of the highest calibre. Philanthropic
support is a key component to this aspect of our vision.
