As Director of the Centre for Law and Medicine, it is my vision to specifically promote the unique transcendental nature of medical law in its relationship and impact on all other related disciplines, for the greater benefit of public as well as private health care in South Africa.
The mission of the Centre is to (a) conduct research and obtain insight with regard to legal problems concerning medical law and ethics, medical jurisprudence and health care law, forensic medicine, forensic psychiatry and psychology, psychopharmacology bioethics, telemedicine and any other related field or subject; (b) generate, promote and provide expertise concerning the mentioned fields; and (c) to contribute to the development of law and medicine in Africa.
