Bequest of bodies

The University of Otago Medical School relies on the altruistic action of the public to maintain its teaching of, and research into, human anatomy. The chief value of body bequests is for teaching anatomy to health science students, including medical students.

Acquiring a sound knowledge of the structure of the human body is possible only if medical students have access to human bodies for careful dissection and study.

The Department of Anatomy website has further information regarding the bequest programme, and contact details for the Bequest Administrator.

Overseas doctors seeking registration in New Zealand

The University of Otago Medical School receives many enquiries from overseas doctors about working in New Zealand.

In many countries, universities may have a role in assisting with registration and workforce employment. However, in New Zealand, such enquiries should be directed to the Medical Council of New Zealand:

Medical Council of New Zealand

It may be possible to obtain temporary registration for a specific period, to undertake supervised practice during residency training. You need to contact the Medical Council of New Zealand to discuss this.

Once you have temporary registration to practice medicine, you can seek an approved training post as a house surgeon or registrar in a health services hospital.
