Decentralised Clinical Training Platform
UKZN’s College of Health Sciences is the first higher education institution in the country to initiate steps to ensure that UKZN produces healthcare professionals who are fit for purpose in a primary healthcare model.
Primary healthcare (PHC) is part of a larger drive to get health care delivery fit for purpose in the 21st Century with a view to ensure access to high quality care to a defined population. This vision is the driving force behind the re-engineering of the College of Health Science’s curriculum to ensure UKZN produces healthcare professionals that are competent and prepared for the changing dynamics of healthcare in a developing world.
The University of KwaZulu-Natal and the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will remain operational over the next 5 years. This MOU provides an opportunity for everyone in the College to be a part of the process to produce competent graduates that will extend quality healthcare to all parts of the population.
