AMRF Medical Sciences Learning Centre - Whakaaro Pai

The AMRF Medical Sciences Learning Centre is a purpose-built and architecturally-designed facility for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education in anatomy, radiology and pathology.


The Centre combines the Medical School’s anatomy and pathology museums and contains a wide range of anatomical models and specimens covering all body systems, over 1100 pathology specimens, and an extensive on-line radiology and pathology image database.

Construction of the Centre was made possible through a generous gift of $500,000 from the Auckland Medical Research Foundation to mark their 50th anniversary of funding medical research in the Auckland region.

The Centre, designed by Auckland architect Rick Pearson, was opened by the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Helen Clark on 2 December 2005. It was a winner of the New Zealand Institute of Architects New Zealand Award 2006, New Zealand Institute of Architects Colour Award 2006, and a finalist in the NZIA Supreme Award 2006.
