Milly comes home

to start career

Joining this year’s intake of House Officers at Hawke’s Bay Hospital felt like coming home for Milly Bowen.

Milly, of Rongomaiwahine (iwi), grew up on a farm on Te Mahia Peninsula and attended boarding school in Hawke’s Bay before heading south to study medicine at the University of Otago.

But it was the whakawhanaungatanga (establishing relationships) gained from the Tuakana Teina Internship that truly made her new beginning feel like she was returning home.

Milly, was one of the inaugural Tuakana Teina interns in 2019 who spent the summer working within the Māori Health Team in Te Matau a Māui, Hawke’s Bay.
