Medical Student Awards

Medical Student Awards

In 2016, Te ORA, in association with PHARMAC, launched two new annual Medical Student Awards. 

  • Te Tohu Whaioranga Rangahau –  Te ORA and PHARMAC student award for Excellence in Research.


  • Te Tohu Whaioranga Hautūtanga – Te ORA and PHARMAC student award for Excellence in Leadership.   This award is for Community Leadership excellence, where the student has demonstrated the most outstanding contribution and community leadership during the year.


Students will be nominated to receive an award in the two award categories-research excellence and leadership excellence.  Mentors, colleagues, peers or (self) will be invited to nominate a student for an award from early 2017. 


The successful students will be presented with their award at the Te ORA Hui-a-Tau by PHARMAC and Te ORA representatives, each year from 2017.

Recipients of the awards will be awarded up to $5000, paid as an educational grant; with the aim of encouraging excellence in research and leadership.
