Faculty of Health

The Faculty of Health is helping improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders by training people to research and work in New Zealand’s health system.

The health system is more than simply a network of doctors and other medical specialists. It also depends on nurses and midwives, health psychologists, health promoters, policy analysts and medical researchers, data management experts, community workers and leaders.

As well as training these health service professionals, our researchers and teachers collaborate with experts in district health boards, community groups and government ministries to make sure New Zealand’s future is a healthy one.

Improving health and wellbeing in our communities

Victoria is working to improve New Zealanders’ health and wellbeing, drawing on our research and connections with government, District Health Boards, and NGOs, including Māori and Pacific organisations.
