Event Details

From small beginnings, we have transformed medical education and health care in New Zealand and beyond.

In 1968 the The University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences 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 the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, our speakers will outline the historic milestones that contributed to the establishment of the Medical School and its evolution into the FMHS, today regarded as one of the most prestigious academic groupings in the country.
