A Waikato Medical School?

Stuff reports:

A proposal for a Waikato medical school has ruffled the feathers of existing medical schools, with one dubbing it “an ill-considered and expensive folly”.

The University of Waikato and Waikato District Health Board presented their proposal for a third, Hamilton-based, medical school to the Government on Monday.

Things may have changed but for many years the reputation of the Waikato Law School was so poor that a significant number of major law firms would not hire people from them.

Setting up a medical school from scratch in a university without a strong tradition in health sciences runs the risk of ending up with the same result.
