It has been a busy year so far at the University of Otago, Wellington with students, staff, and graduates excelling in their work and achievements. This year we celebrate several milestones at the University of Otago, Wellington, including Occupation and Aviation Medicine Unit (OAMU) reaching its 30th year, and in February, held our 21st Public Health Summer School, the largest and longest-running in the Southern Hemisphere.
The breadth and depth of health research and teaching are part of what makes the University of Otago, Wellington (or UOW) unique in Wellington. Our teaching, scholarship and research are among the best, but we also celebrate diversity and strive to offer an inclusive learning culture that reflects our society.
We hold many public and specialist events all year round, large and small, including conferences and seminars such as the Public Health series, in our Conference Centre.
We are proud to be part of one of New Zealand’s top universities as well as the capital city’s medical school, located next door to Wellington hospital. UOW is the only place in New Zealand to study radiation therapy.
Our undergraduate health science teaching sits alongside our unique world-leading health research and researchers, and state-of-the-art facilities, such as the GENESIS environmental suite in the Centre for Translational Physiology.
