Health Sciences

Recognised nationally and internationally, the University of Johannesburg’s Faculty of Health Sciences reflects one of the most unique compositions within higher learning in South Africa
today. The Faculty houses not only programmes traditionally associated with the Health Professions Council of South Africa and the South African Nursing Council, but also complementary health disciplines and Sport and Movement Studies.

The Faculty offers innovative methods of training with a focus on problem-based education, which is underpinned by appropriate facilities ranging from a well-equipped dissection facility to various
types of laboratories. An on-site Health Training Centre ensures that students receive a wide range of relevant experience under the supervision of qualified practitioners, enhanced by placements in relevant service-rendering facilities.

The Faculty’s specialised and highly trained lecturers prepare students for careers in Chiropractic, Emergency Medical Care, Environmental Health, Homeopathy, Nursing, Optometry, Podiatry, Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, and Sport and Movement Studies.
