A group of staff has been awarded from the
Advanced Study Fund, Learning Scholarships
and Whakatāne Staff Study Fund.
We are lucky enough to receive sponsorship from Bay of Plenty
Medical Research Trust, PurePrint, Farmers AutoVillage, Holland
Beckett Lawyers and Guild and Spence Electricians. These are
all long-standing sponsors who continue to support our staff year
This year we have seen a range of study choices, from practical
hands on courses to some high level Doctorate study that will
contribute to large pieces of work around capacity management as
the DHB constantly evolves.

Matthews – NZ Diploma in Sterilizing Technology and Bay of
Plenty Medical Research Trustee, Eric Coleman.
It’s fantastic to see so many staff committed to their studies
and we recognise the commitment of these staff in continuing
their study in their own time, big commitment from them, their
managers, their families and friends.
Applications for scholarships and study funding will be open again
in late 2019. If you’re thinking of studying in 2020, this could be
