Postgraduate Medicine


The University of Otago Medical School's international reputation attracts very large numbers of postgraduate students from within New Zealand and around the world. Postgraduate students have the opportunity to contribute to leading research programmes and undertake research-based degrees.

The University's flexible degree structure means that a broad range of multidisciplinary thesis topics is available.

In some subjects, it may be possible for international students to complete their thesis in their home countries. In addition, our three clinical medical schools (Christchurch, Dunedin, and Wellington) provide significant input to postgraduate vocational training to enable graduates to meet the requirements of various specialist professional colleges such as surgery and medicine.

Some postgraduate programmes are offered via the University's distance teaching network.
