Te ORA in Partnership with Medical Colleges

Te ORA in Partnership with Medical Colleges

As a very small organisation, conference sponsorship is a fundamental part of our programming at Te ORA. In 2020, despite being condensed into a one-day online conference, we will nevertheless deploy sponsorship to achieve the desired outcomes as we have in previous years.

We have in the past had two levels of sponsorship which are outlined below. The first, Te Rā Tūhura (the Careers day – value $5000) was where Colleges ‘advertise their wares’ to young Māori medical students and doctors in the bid for recruitment into training. The second is called Ngākau Ora (value $10k), which includes a workshop, online presence and access to Te ORA Membership.

Ngākau Ora

Ngākau Ora (value $10k) and it was where Colleges on the journey of becoming pro-equity, Tiriti-compliant, culturally safe organisations can compare notes, catch up on progress and engage in conversation with the wider Te ORA membership. We now acknowledge that the sector is moving almost as one into this area of cultural safety and the pursuit of equitable health outcomes for indigenous peoples and the idea of having Te Rā Tūhura without Ngākau Ora seems rather outdated – after all, we are all pretty much engaged in both!

NGĀKAU ORA WORKSHOP – (Online workshop in development due to COVID-19 restrictions)
The Ngākau Ora workshop is specifically designed for senior leads of medical colleges and health organisations.  The workshop is designed to proivde learning, guidance and support to organisations in Cultural Competence, Safety and Health Equity. Ngākau Ora Workshop for 2020/2021 will build on the key messages delivered at the Te ORA and Medical Council of New Zealand Health Equity Symposium July 2019. 

Te Rā Tūhura Manaaki

Generally, as part of Te ORA’s Hui ā-Tau & Scientific Conference we hold Te Rā Tūhura (our annual medical careers expo).  Te Rā Tūhura  typically attracts more than 100 attendees made up of: 

  • tauira kura tuarua (high school students),
  • rata tauira (medical school students), and
  • rata teina (PGY1 and PGY2 doctors)

In recent years as attendance of Te Rā Tūhura  has grown, the exhibition style of Te Rā Tūhura has transformed to be an interactive event, with a programme that optimises attendee engagement with organisations as well as hearing inspirational kōrero from Māori Doctors, Trainees and Fellows.  

While global events in 2020 have overshadowed Te Rā Tūhura Te ORA is committed to ensuring that we still provide access to relevant and important information that Medical Colleges would like to share with our Membership.
