Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences

Vision and plans

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.
