In April of this year, the Medical Council of New Zealand released the results of the New Zealand Medical Workforce 2015 survey. The survey has provided a wealth of information about the doctors registered in New Zealand. Among the pages of the report is information about the growing Māori medical workforce. Te Rau Matatini has delved into the New Zealand Medical Workforce data to see how the Māori medical workforce is shaping up.
The fact sheet below, created by Te Rau Matatini, provides a summary of key facts about the Māori doctors, including some of the differences between them and Pākehā doctors, as well as the types of doctors they are, and current areas of training.
