The MBChB programme takes six years to complete. After graduating with an MBChB degree and completing two years’ internship and a year’s community service, you will be allowed by the Health Professions Council of South Africa to practise as a medical doctor.
Our 6-year degree provides world-class training for students who wish to practice as medical doctors. The goals of the graduate profile are achieved by a carefully constructed curriculum which aims to produce a competent, undifferentiated doctor with the attitudes, knowledge and skills to enter the healthcare field with confidence. This entails a balance between preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative healthcare in a primary healthcare setting. It promotes communication skills, teamwork, professional values and competent clinical practice, in the context of the primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare systems. The educational approach equips students with critical thinking and lifelong learning skills.
