Faculty of Health Sciences
The Faculty offers learners a preferred experience; innovative methods of training with a focus on problem-based education complemented by appropriate facilities including a well-equipped dissection facility and laboratories. Our on site Health Training Centre ensures that students receive a wide-range of relevant experience under the supervision of qualified practitioners, complemented by placements in relevant service rendering facilities.
Postgraduate studies form an important component of the Faculty's activities. In collaboration with various partners, including but not exclusive to the National Research Foundation, Medical Research Council and World Health Organisation, we strive to address key challenges relevant to the South African situation.
In keeping with our pursuit of excellence, we are constantly re-evaluating our approaches to teaching, learning and assessment. Programme reviews, external advisory committees and quality assurance initiatives are some examples of how we ensure that we remain leaders in our relevant fields.
Our Faculty is committed to community development and various programmes are involved in sustainable, social investment and community outreach programmes. Furthermore, our focus on life-long learning remains core from the day learners enter our programmes and throughout their professional careers.
