A special thanks to our friends the Auckland Medical Research Foundation for partnering with us and co-hosting this lecture.







Professor Linda Bryder, Associate Professor Judy Kilpatrick, Professor John Shaw, Professor Papaarangi Reid and Professor Warwick Bagg.


Abstract:  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 Auckland Medical Research Foundation (AMRF), our speakers will outline the historic milestones that contributed to the establishment of the Medical School and its evolution into the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, today regarded as one of the most prestigious academic groupings in the country.
