University of Otago Wellington School of Medicine
The University of Otago, Wellington is one of three medical schools that make up the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Otago. All University of Otago medical students who gain entry after a competitive Health Sciences First Year programme, or who gain graduate entry, spend their second and third years studying at the Dunedin School of Medicine. In their fourth and fifth years, medical students can either continue to study in Dunedin, or at the University of Otago, Christchurch or University of Otago, Wellington medical schools.
From 1924, students could complete their last year of training at hospitals in either Auckland, Christchurch, or Wellington as well as Dunedin. In 1938, a branch faculty was established in Christchurch, Auckland, and Wellington. The Wellington branch faculty became a 'clinical' school in 1977, the forerunner to the modern University of Otago, Wellington.
The University of Otago, Wellington is structured into nine academic departments: Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Pathology & Molecular Medicine, Primary Health Care & General Practice, Psychological Medicine, Public Health, Radiation Therapy, and Surgery & Anaesthesia. Additional disciplines are taught in Dunedin and Christchurch.
