Health Sciences Faculty Day 2019


20 & 21 August 2019


The main purpose of the Faculty of Health Sciences Faculty Day is to give researchers, post- and undergraduate students the opportunity to present their research findings to the Faculty. Research is presented in the form of poster exhibitions and oral and poster presentations. 

The theme of Faculty Day is:  "Research, Innovation and Education towards better health".  The intention is to generate debate amongst a broad range of students and academics about issues of development towards better health for all.

The focus of Faculty Day will be on how research within in the Faculty supports progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  For more information on the goals (and sub-goals) visit

On postgraduate level (MSc and higher degrees) prizes are awarded for the best contributions in clinical and basic sciences research. Undergraduate students up to honours level compete for an undergraduate prize.

Distinguished speakers from within and outside the Faculty are invited to take part in the proceedings and Continued Professional Development (CPD) points can be earned by attending Faculty Day.

The concluding event of Faculty Day is the social function, where faculty members have the opportunity to socialise and meet with fellow faculty members.
