Message from the Chairperson 

Chairman of the School of Medicine    

The School of Medicine at the University of Pretoria is a vibrant and active place to be studying, and to be working.

We have both under- and post-graduate training opportunities in a vast number of degrees ranging from BSc, through MBChB and Masters to PhD’s in many programmes.

On a daily basis a large number of students roam our many campuses, including the wonderful new additions to the Prinshof Campus – the Tswelopele lecture theatre complex and administration building.

The HW Snyman complex has also seen a number of upgrades and new facilities including a Skills Lab that would rival any in the world.

Publication outputs, based on novel research in Medicine, have increased in our School and we have some really exciting research centres and departments, including Nuclear Medicine, Cellular Biology, Immunology, Cancers, Mother and Child Care Pharmacology, Infectious Diseases and Sports Sciences.

The School of Medicine has departments in basic sciences, pathology and many clinical disciplines and we interact with a number of partners including the Gauteng Department of Health and NHLS. We are meeting with external stakeholders on an almost daily basis to facilitate relationships for funding and research opportunities.

So please join me in making our School a wonderful place to train, teach and work.
