One of South Africa’s foremost medical schools

Situated predominantly in the beautiful Francois Retief Building, and with a clinical training platform that includes all of Universitas, National and Pelonomi Tertiary Hospitals, as well as a host of other regional hospitals and clinics throughout the Free State, the School of Clinical Medicine has always attracted a large number of high-calibre applicants for its courses from across South Africa and indeed internationally.
