4th Year MBChB Public Health and Primary Health Care
Course co-ordinator: Prof. Leslie London
This 8-week block rotation for 4th year Medical Students introduces students to the core concepts of Public Health, Primary Health Care and Family Medicine, in the context of a changing health service in South Africa. The block focuses on project work in a community setting with a focus on experimental learning. Students' field work is conducted Khayelitsha, Brown's Farm, Woodstock and Mamre, working with the local Non-governmental health organisations and the health services, to address topics of importance identified by local stakeholders. Five groups of 32 to 38 students cycle through the blocks in the course of the year, with about 8 to 9 students placed at each site. Increasingly, the University is moving to ensure its teaching of students is done in community settings, and in ways that help to build partnerships with communities and their organisations.
