Name change for Auckland School of Medicine Foundation

The University of Auckland School of Medicine Foundation (SoMF) is set to have a name change. From 1 January 2021, it will be called The University of Auckland Medical and Health Sciences Foundation (MHSF).

Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences

When the Foundation was established in the 1990s, its name reflected the original Medical School that was established at Grafton in 1969.

Since then five more schools have been added (Medical Sciences, Nursing, Optometry and Vision Science, Pharmacy and Population Health) and the Faculty is now called ‘Medical and Health Sciences’ to reflect this diversity.

Therefore, it is appropriate to rename the Foundation to better match the Faculty’s name and extensive mission.

From 1 January, the website address will change to:
