The Rangatahi Programme is a Māori and Pacific workforce development programme designed to increase the number of Māori and Pacific health professionals to better reflect the population we serve and assist in reducing inequities our Māori and Pacific communities are currently facing.

The Rangatahi Programme provides an opportunity for Māori and Pacific secondary school students to explore a career in health by having direct exposure and experience within a healthcare setting.

We’re been running our programme since 2007, and have had up to 180 students per year attend our introduction day. Our participant’s progress through the programme undertaking work experience week and a summer cadetship – then can transition onto tertiary study and also have the opportunity to work with us at Auckland DHB post-studies.
