Welcome to the College of Health Sciences and we are one of the four Colleges that form the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN). Our College is devoted to global excellence by preparing professional health care providers/researchers.
Our college consists of four Schools namely:
The College of Health Sciences is a multi-professional institution spread across four of the five campuses of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Its excellent scholars function holistically, ethically and in a socially responsive manner within the African health care environment while actively engaging international collaboration and partnerships for education, research and service.
Professor Ncoza Dlova, Dean and Head of UKZN’s School of Clinical Medicine, has launched a fund to support medical students with historic debt. The fund will ensure that education is a reality for those who are struggling financially. Further, investing in future medical doctors will inject much needed human resources in an already overburdened healthcare system.
Dlova said, We are appealing to donors, non-governmental organisations, the corporate sector, alumni of UKZN’s Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine as well as alumni of the former Alan Taylor residence to assist with donations.’
Alumnus and founder of the Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman pledged R3 million towards the fund.
All donor contributions will be received by the UKZN foundation which will qualify donors to receive a section 18 A certificate which is a tax benefit for their pledge.
