Top-ranking medical and radiation therapy students scoop awards at Roxy Theatre, Wellington

Wellington’s top-ranking medical and radiation therapy students
enjoyed their own version of the red carpet at the University of
Otago, Wellington’s 2017 Awards Ceremony at the Roxy Theatre on
17 November.
Those gathered were treated to the highlights of the year – the
University of Wellington’s strengthened relationships with local iwi
and district health boards, its growing Trans-Tasman connection on
the radiation therapy front, the debating prowess of its students on
political issues such as organ donations and the future of health, the significant numbers of Māori and Pacific students (75 and 41
respectively out of a total of 825 students), and academic and
research achievements across the campus.
Nearly 50 awards were presented, about 10 for each category of
students – 4th, 5th, and 6th year medical students, radiation therapy students, and post-graduates.
The University of Otago, Wellington is the only provider of
radiation therapy training in New Zealand.
