Māori Health department

An essential part of health sciences at AUT, Māori Health develops and teaches Te Ara Hauora Māori (Māori health) pathway papers for students interested in a Māori health career.

Te Ara Hauora Māori promotes connectedness between a student’s chosen career and Māori health. The path integrates core health and environmental sciences papers across a number of programmes.
