To quote a recent student...

"It was incredible to be taught by people actively practising and making a huge difference in Aotearoa health and policy. I could see their work changing our system around me. I could see it in the medical journals, in the media, in the decisions of government." - Carl Shuker (DPH student - Wellington).
