NMU Medical School Applications for 2021: Following the final approval and registration by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) in late December 2020 for Mandela University to offer the MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) qualification, it’s now full steam ahead for South Africa’s 10th medical school.
The Medical School has been given the go-ahead to offer the six-year medical degree after assessment in terms of curriculum, infrastructure, equipment, staff, the necessary student support and agreements with stakeholders.
The first cohort of students starting in March 2021, will be the first to study medicine in a unique, community- focused setting.
Mandela University’s Medical School, which is based at the Missionvale Campus in the heart of the Bay’s townships and close to Dora Nginza and Livingstone hospitals, will serve as a beacon of hope for communities it aims to serve, as well as the Eastern Cape and South Africa at large.
