​Medical Rescue Simulation Centre taking shape in Doornfontein

The Health Science Faculty at UJ is developing a Medical Rescue Simulation Centre on UJ’s Doornfontein Campus and is reaching out to potential donors to join the faculty in what will be a first for the African continent.

When completed, UJ’s Medical Rescue Simulation Centre will be a practical training centre that equips students with the necessary skills to conduct complex medical rescues and leading to an internationally recognised qualification in Disaster Rescue.

The Department of Emergency Medical Care at UJ is one of only five university medical facilities on the African continent that includes medical rescue education and training as part of the curriculum.

The University is seeking donor support in order for this much-needed centre to be built.  
Art materials sought for FADA students

The Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA) is looking to raise funds to support needy students who require these art materials in order to equip them with the tools they need to perform in class.

Students are required to purchase art materials. These cost approximately R15 000 per student, per year but not all FADA students can afford to buy the required materials.

FADA is home to 1 360 students and is housed in the purpose-built FADA Building on the Auckland Park Bunting Road Campus.

FADA graduates are employed nationally and internationally in diverse areas of industry, or work as freelance designers, architectural technologists or independent artists. Whatever their preference, they have been thoroughly prepared as professionals in the highly competitive fields of art, design and architecture through creative and entrepreneurial development, which are key elements in the programmes offered.

Anyone interested in assisting needy students with art materials or who are interested in more information about the Emergency Medical Centre should contact Cagney Govender on telephone: +27 11 559 6340 or email:
