Med school needs help from mums

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

If you’re about to have a child, you could help the next gen­er­a­tion of New Zealand doc­tors.

The Auck­land Univer­sity med­i­cal school is seek­ing 20 women close to giv­ing birth who are will­ing to al­low med­i­cal stu­dents to visit their new­born seven or eight times over a 12 to 15 month pe­riod.

Pae­di­atrics lec­turer Phillipa Clark says it is a valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence for stu­dents be­cause many haven’t had much con­tact with ba­bies.

To take part call Michelle Car­valho on 373-7599 ext 89822 or email m.car­valho@ auck­land.ac.nz.
