UKZN’s School of Clinical Medicine is committed in growing health professionals and researchers to meet the challenges faced by Africans.

The school is also a proud supporter of the Fidel Castro Nelson Mandela Collaboration and over the years we have been able to welcome a large number of Cuban trained medical students into our academic stream and integrate them into our Decentralized Clinical Training Platform.

Together with KZN-Department of Health, our focus has been on ensuring that that we provide our clinical students with optimal clinical training of high quality; hence, we are continuously increasing and improving our Decentralized Clinical Training sites across the province to accommodate a growing number of students in this school.
