About this Event

The eighth biennial Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network Connection will be held in Christchurch, Aotearoa/New Zealand from 5 – 8 November 2019. The event will be hosted by The University of Otago.

This years theme is ‘Pouhine Poutama: Embedding Indigenous Health Education‘.

The LIME Connection Scientific Committee, Suzanne Pitama and Tania Huria sought the support of Te Marino Lenihan (Ngai Tuahuriri, Ngati Huirapa, Ngait Huikai)  to help  developed the whakatauki (proverb). Pouhine Poutama into a conference theme that speaks to vertical and horizontal integration of knowledge, understanding and perspective (i.e. curriculum) and expresses, through deliberate juxtaposition, the complimentary and essential union of Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives, knowledge and understanding. Vertical integration refers to the continuum of teaching and learning from Universities to Specialisation, while horizontal refers to connection and collaboration across all Health Sciences.
