Faculty of Health Sciences

The Wits Faculty of Health Sciences remains a leading research hub on the continent and in the world and our research continues to impact directly on improving and saving the lives of people every day.

The Faculty and its associated entities and partners provide a vibrant environment within which some of the best research in the world is undertaken.
