Welcome to the University of Otago, Wellington
Where excellence and leadership in research and teaching happen.
The University of Otago Wellington is a nationally significant health sciences campus based at the Wellington Regional Hospital in Newtown, Wellington.
We have strong relationships with health service providers including local District Health Boards: Capital & Coast, Hutt Valley Health, MidCentral Health, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki and Wairarapa. We are also well supported by primary care providers who welcome our students to their clinics.
We teach undergraduate Medical, Dietetics, Dental, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy students and are New Zealand’s only provider of the Bachelor of Radiation Therapy – a three-year undergraduate programme.
At postgraduate level we lead or contribute to the training of medical specialists and other disciplines, in partnership with local District Health Boards and professional Colleges.
We offer a diverse range of research-informed national and international clinical and public health postgraduate courses for health professionals including medical specialists, nurses, general practitioners, pharmacists, physiotherapists, clinical psychologists and social workers. We also run the Public Health Summer School (the largest in the Southern Hemisphere) every February.
Our staff PhD and Masters students conduct world class research and disseminate research evidence and clinical knowledge to our communities, policy makers, and government and non-government agencies.
Please contact my office if you would like any further information and we will be happy to help.
