Professor Lutz Beckert

PositionProfessor, Department of Medicine, and Senior Lecturer, MIHI
DepartmentsDepartment of Māori Indigenous Health Innovation (Christchurch), Department of Medicine (Christchurch)
QualificationsMD(Hamburg) FRACP MRCP(UK) FCCP
Research summaryRespiratory physiology and clinical medicine

Research

  • Venous thrombembolism
  • Respiratory physiology
  • Sleep medicine
  • Clinical audits
  • Pleural disease
  • Research into teaching

Additional details

Together with Professor Suetonia Palmer, Lutz is the co-convenor of the Clinical Orientation week. Lutz also teaches into the CardioRespiratory – CVPD module.

With the MIHI team, Lutz and Suetonia are also teaching Haoura Maori. The indigenous and non-indigenous teaching team has created a culturally safe environment for Māori, which keeps Māori patient / whānau / communities’ voices at the centre of the kaupapa. It provides a shared language for those involved in medical education and health services. This has implication for both teaching and clinical practice, and has resulted in the development of a cohesive and respectful team environment enabling teaching, clinical services and research.
