Health Sciences

The Faculty was established in 1985 with the introduction of MBChB programme. At this time, the Department of Nursing, which was operating under the Faculty of Economic Sciences, was relocated.

The Faculty of Health Sciences has its headquarters at Mthatha Campus. Its academic health service complex is spread throughout the Eastern Cape Province including Mthatha, East London Hospital, Port Elizabeth, about 15 district hospitals mainly in the North Eastern Region of the Eastern Cape and seven community health centres.

The teaching platform is further enhanced by the establishment of Health Resource Centres at Mthatha, East London, Port Elizabeth and Komani which creates an academic environment throughout the Eastern Cape Province so that students are taught by joint staff who have access to library and internet facilities. It enables the functions of an academic institution to be fulfilled adequately.
 The Faculty has three areas of specialisation:

– Medicine
– Nursing
– Allied Health Professions.


The research niche areas are:

Basic Sciences: Human Nutrition, Medicinal Plants & Traditional Medicine
Clinical Sciences: Clinical Epidemiology, Chronic Diseases including Tuberculosis, Asthma, Cardiac Diseases, & HIV/Aids from Health Promotion and Prevention including HIV Vaccine Testing to Monitoring and Evaluation of HIV/Aids Management including ARVs
Public Health: Burden of Disease, Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Health Systems Research & Health Informatics


Medical Education: Problem-based Education, Community-based Education & Service-Learning.

Programme Requirements

SELECTION PROCEDURE

Short listing

A selected number of candidates will be short listed for an interview, after which recommendations for the final selection for admission will be referred to the Faculty Admission Committee.
Final selection for admission

Academic results and performance at interviews weigh equally. The recommendations of the Faculty Admission Committee will be final.
Please note

Due to the structure of the curriculum, admission can only be at MBChB 1 level. However under special circumstances, students coming from other schools that offer integrated problem-based and community based programmes may be considered at levels other than MBChB 1, to cater for multiple entry points.
 

 

VISITING MEDICAL STUDENTS

The Faculty accepts visiting undergraduate medical students from other health sciences faculties who are in their semi-final or final clinical year of study only. Visiting students take part in clinical clerkship along with WSU medical students.

Such students are registered by the Faculty with HPCSA and such visits take place under WSU’s auspices.

Research Students in non–clinical departments are not allowed to work with patients and will not be registered with the HPCSA.

Visits are limited to a maximum period of six weeks in all divisions. No exceptions are in this regard. The full elective placement must be spent in the department to which you have been allocated.
 

 

BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES

Entry Requirements

Assumption of Earlier Learning

Basic medical sciences deal with fundamental scientific basis of the body function. It requires, therefore, certain basic understanding of the body functions.

Students with a good pass in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Biology/Life Sciences will find it easier to understand the basic medical science principles.

The following shall apply to entry in to first year of the programme:

  • Students who qualify for university admission with good passes in the above specified subjects are eligible for admission the first year of the programme.
  • Students without matriculation exemption can enrol in the Science Foundation year in lieu of the matriculation exemption.

 

BACHELOR OF MEDICAL CLINICAL PRACTICE (B MED CLIN PRAC)

Entry Requirements

Senior Certificate

The student intake is determined by a structured selection process, where academic and personal attributes are given equal importance. From 2009, a national Senior Certificate (NSC) will be required with an achievement rating of 4 (50% or better) in four recognised NSC 20-credit subjects: English, Mathematics, Biology and Physical Science.

  • the ability to communicate in isiXhosa as most of the patients are isiXhosa-speaking. An isiXhosa course in offered by the University's Department of African Languages and a language laboratory assists the learning process. All non-isiXhosa speaking students will be required to pass that course before proceeding to clinical contact with patients.

 

BACHELOR OF MEDICINE AND BACHELOR OF SURGERY (MBChB)
