Medicine and Health Sciences
Welcome to Stellenbosch University


Strong partnerships between the Stellenbosch University and the Western Cape Government: Department of Health expressed through collaboration at the level of Tygerberg Hospital, but also through various regional hospitals and district level health facilities, as well as the National Health Laboratory Services are key to fulfilling our joint mandates of training, service and research. ​Undergraduate students, specialists in training and clinical academics engage in the health service to provide a valuable service to the community, and are able to build a base of knowledge that will serve them well in their future careers in the health care system.

The faculty also partners with the private sector and other stakeholders such as the provincial departments of social services and education and non-profit organisations. This supports many aspects of teaching, training and research. ​
