New Zealand Medical Teaching Award

The New Zealand Medical Students’ Association (NZMSA) and the New Zealand Medical Association (NZMA) are proud to announce the launch of the annual New Zealand Medical Teaching Award.

The award is being introduced to recognise the positive impact that many doctors have—through their commitment to teaching and the Hippocratic Oath—and to encourage the development of a positive clinical teaching culture and environment for the benefit of students, staff and ultimately patients.

The award gives us a chance to praise what is laudable, to recognise those who might not otherwise have been noted, and to create a positive and encouraging atmosphere where we can be inspired by champions of professionalism.

Student Innovation Fund

Welcome dear innovator!

NZMSA is pleased you are applying for the Student Innovation Fund, which aims at fostering new student-led projects, because we know there’s a wealth of talent and ideas in Medical School, and sometimes you just need a helping hand.

There are already so many brilliant projects created by medical students, however, we know there are countless others that are still in their infancy.  This fund was designed to help these innovations come to fruition.

The focus of this fund is to assist in promoting new ideas, providing leadership opportunities, student-initiated action and the acquisition of new knowledge.  There are no limits on the subject of your proposal, we know there is a wide range of interests out there, and we want to support them.

Before applying, please check through the Terms of Reference 2018

Many thanks to you for sharing your great innovations with us!

The NZMSA executive.
