Pursuing their research interests at a deeper level is the ‘‘right thing'' for Otago medical students to do, Prof Don Roberton, the University of Otago pro-vicechancellor of health sciences, says.

Prof Roberton, who is also dean of the university Faculty of Medicine, was commenting at a recent university function after announcing a series of scholarships and other awards to BMedSc (Hons) students at the university's Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington campuses.

Awards went to Dunedin-based students Yoska Eerens, Prabal Mishra, Tzu-Yun (‘‘Alice'') Chung, Annika Aisha Sjoeholm, Faculty of Medicine Scholarships ($5000 each); Joseph Donnelly, Maurice and Phyllis Paykel Trust Research Award in Medical Sciences ($8000) and AFJ Mickle Scholarship ($600). An international student, Jen Yuh Lim, is undertaking BMedSc (Hons) study in Dunedin this year but is not eligible for a scholarship.
