50th Anniversary Open Day
What better way to celebrate our 50th anniversary than to share it with everyone who has helped or been helped by us in some way over the last half century? Whether you’re a past or present student, a health professional or a member of the public, come and celebrate with us.
On Saturday 17 March 2018 from 9.30am-4pm, our Grafton Campus will be open to the public with a carnival atmosphere.
Join in the free festivities with live entertainment, children’s activities, games, campus tours, medical wonders, MED Talks, wacky science, robots and a range of food offerings on site to satisfy your appetite throughout the day. With people at the heart of everything we do, we look forward to welcoming you in to the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences.
Tickets are limited, so grab yours now here.
See you there!
Like TED Talks, but with a medical and health focus. We’ll be hosting 10 different MED Talk Sessions throughout the day, each featuring four to five different speakers who will bring a different perspective to their topic. From infections to innovations, maternity to mental health, diseases to drugs—there’s a MED Talk to feed the interests of all.
Are you itching for a chance to explore Grafton campus? We’ll be offering a range of guided tours throughout the day, giving you the chance to sneak a peek at what our different schools do behind the scenes. There’s no need to stress about online sign-ups either—just show up on the day and jot down your name at the tours desk.
Our clinical sessions are a chance for you to sit down and delve into a range of interesting topics from across our Faculty. Think of these sessions like bite-sized lectures; at only 20 minutes each, you’ll have plenty of time to devour lots of knowledge!
We want this day to be fun for the whole family, which is why we’ve put together our own kids’ corner! This fun space will be full of cool hands-on activities, like colouring in your brain or dressing up as a scientist.
