Category:Schools of medicine in New Zealand
New Zealand has two universities with medical faculties, but four 'schools' of medicine. The University of Auckland teaches medicine in the Auckland and Waikato Clinical Schools, and the University of Otago Medical School (based in Dunedin) teaches medicine in three medical schools: the Dunedin School of Medicine, the University of Otago, Wellington in Wellington, and the University of Otago, Christchurch in Christchurch. Both Auckland and Otago teach the initial three years of the course in Auckland and Dunedin respectively and both schools include 'rural immersion' programmes as an optional part of their clinical curricula.1, 2 After these first three years, Otago students are assigned to complete their degree in either Dunedin, Christchurch, or Wellington; whereas Auckland students are assigned to adjacent hospitals and teaching schools on a short-term basis with some teaching remaining in Auckland. Prior to the opening of the University of Auckland Faculty of Medicine in 1968, Otago had had a branch faculty in Auckland.
