Waikato DHB aims to be a centre of excellence in research - including clinical research and participation in national and international clinical trials, academic research for professional development, as well as research that drives social and cultural change and service delivery improvements for the people in our health district.
The diversity and geographical span of the Waikato health district provides many opportunities for innovative and collaborative research.
Research is supported by strong links with both Auckland and Waikato universities and research foundations as well as Waikato DHB's own resources - a superb library, a well structured research approval process and research governance, and Waikato's ability to attract world-leading clinicians with an interest in research and training.
