Otago Maori medical student perspectives on cultural development
3 months

Lay summary

Currently the curriculum delivered to medical students at Otago caters for the academic and general aspects of professional development of Māori medical students however there is no specific curriculum for Māori medical students' cultural development. Exploration of the cultural development needs of Māori medical students would be valuable in planning how best to meet these needs. It is highlighted that many Māori medical students feel they would benefit from more exposure to te reo me ōna tikanga. This research will provided a better insight into the needs and aspirations of our diverse tauira and how we can better support them.
