The Innovation: Māori health specialist resource

Māori health specialists play a vital role in improving health services and outcomes for whānau. That's why Aotearoa needs more of them.

We asked leading Māori specialists to share their stories so you can see the difference your medical skills could make to your life and the lives of others. There are also short videos that offer a glimpse into their working lives and helpful links to study choices.

View the videos on the Te ORA website Maori Health Specialists.

You'll find all the inspiration and advice you need to begin your specialist career.

So, get inspired and put your study and skills to work in the best way possible for you and your whānau.
