Community Based Education

During their training, health professional experience health sciences education at all levels in the health care system through our innovative community based education programme: in under-served metropolitan and rural areas, community health centres, family medicine practices, mobile clinics and schools, old age homes and the homes of patients - in the heart of various communities. In this respect, SU has made a strategic decision to ensure that 50% of clinical training occurs in the community setting at various regional hospitals, in the district health services and community based clinics and organisations. ​​
