Professor Ntobeko Ntusi, Chair and Head of the Department of Medicine, University of Cape Town, provides insights and guidelines from Infectious Disease Experts and Specialist Clinicians in the Department, as well as contributions from the global community that are deemed relevant to our circumstances.
On the anniversary of his birthday, UCT colleagues, family and friends honoured the late Professor Bongani Mayosi with a bibliography, an inaugural lecture and the renaming (and future renovations) of the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Health Sciences Library, which will now be known as the Bongani Mayosi Health Sciences Library.
Welcome to the Department of Medicine. The Department of Medicine is a large clinical department which plays a leading role in medical education and research, and provides clinical services to the communities of the Western Cape and, in the case of our highly specialised services, to patients throughout southern Africa.
Preparing to assess and manage ill patients in a clinical setting for the first time can cause considerable stress and anxiety for fourth-year medical students at the University of Cape Town (UCT). But that’s a thing of the past, following the introduction of the Bootcamp Orientation Programme. The initiative was organised by the convenors of the fourth-year Internal Medicine rotation programme and roped in staff from the Department of Medicine in UCT’s Faculty of Health Sciences for support.
Attendees are required to register in order to secure their place and receive the log-in link & password to the live sessions on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 April (those details will be emailed 48 hours prior to the registrant).
