About University of Pretoria Faculty of Health Sciences
Welcome to the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Pretoria
The Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Pretoria is recognized nationally and internationally as an outstanding institution in terms of its education of health professionals, its research and its clinical service. Furthermore, it is an institution with a tradition of excellence and a proud history.
A great health sciences institution, however, never rests comfortably on its past successes. A great health sciences institution does more than make history – it makes the future. The Faculty of Health Sciences management is deeply committed and this has been translated into an action agenda which recognises the need for constant innovation and is dedicated to meet the health sciences challenges that South African society faces: those not yet conquered and those not yet known.
Students learn to make a life, make a living and make a difference. Graduates become community leaders that are distinct in their ability to think, communicate and contribute.
Research in the Faculty of Health Sciences has a strong emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches.
