Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences


Since opening our doors over 50 years ago on the south-western tip of Africa, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University has become an undisputed and indispensable leader in the field of health sciences in South Africa and on the African continent.

The Faculty's position in academic health is unique. Our modern infrastructure and sophisticated research facilities, combined with our interaction with communities, affected by a wide range of diseases - many of which are rarely seen in the modern-day world - present our students, researchers and clinicians with opportunities for collaborative research that contributes to an international pool of knowledge.

This knowledge build capacity in all spheres of health care, specifically on the African continent, but with important global implications. We invite you to share it with us.

This faculty was known as the Faculty of Health Sciences until 30 April 2012.
