The SoHCS at the University of Pretoria is made up of the Departments of Nursing Science, Physiotherapy, Human Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, and Radiography. The School has established a reputation for quality research in healthcare, using a variety of research approaches and designs fit for the Sub-Saharan context, but internationally competitive. One example is that we also house Prof Mavis Mulaudzi as the SARChI Chair in Ubuntu Community Model of Nursing, where she is focusing on improving universal access to health, health care, and health outcomes of people in remote, rural, and under-resourced communities.
Each department in the SoHCS is offering a variety of Master’s, and PhD programmes and prospective students are urged to access the detailed information from the departments. To support postgraduate students and their supervisors, the School and Faculty present workshops, and short seminars and provide links to numerous resources necessary to complete your studies. The library at the Faculty of Health Sciences is leading in information and research resources and well-informed dedicated librarians will assist all our postgraduate students.
Please join us and become part of the exciting world of research in the SoHCS.
