Nov. 24, 2016

Maori and Pacific medical students have graduated in record numbers this year, the University of Auckland says.

They made up one fifth of the 215 new doctors from the university’s November graduation.

Between Auckland and Otago universities, there have been a total of 70 Maori and 30 Pacific medical graduates in 2016, also a record.
