Stellenbosch University Logistics: Clinical Training Platform
"Unlocking the Clinical Training Platform"
A decentralised clinical training platform is a
strategic imperative of the Stellenbosch University Faculty of Medicine and
Health Sciences (FMHS) on which undergraduate students of programmes in
Medicine, Human Nutrition, Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy
and Physiotherapy do clinical rotations.
SUNLOC stands for Stellenbosch University Logistics for the Clinical Training Platform. The SUNLOC organizational unit is a stand-alone professional support service component of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FHMS), managed by the Clinical Training Platform manager, under the authority of the Vice Dean: Clinical Services and Social Impact.
The SUNLOC office which serves the clinical training platform is located at the Tygerberg campus and from there rolls out a multi-pronged logistics support system to students. This includes transport facilitation with shuttle services and vehicle hire through close liaison with Vehicle Fleet and Faculty coordinators as well as distant accommodation arrangements. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) support is provided from a resource bank of laptops, routers and data products.
