Māori Health department

An essential part of health sciences at AUT, the Māori Health department 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.

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across health sciences.
