The University of Auckland is recognised internationally as a centre of academic excellence and is NZ’s largest University.

National Women’s Health, Auckland City Hospital (ADHB) is the largest maternity hospital in Australasia and a leading tertiary and quaternary provider of Women’s Health and Level 3 Neonatal services to the Northern part of the North Island of New Zealand; including subspecialty services in MFM, Gynaecological Oncology, Urogynaecology and Minimal Access Surgery. ADHB has a catchment area of approximately 1,000,000 with 7,000 births per annum and 20,000 city-wide across Auckland.
