Centre for Health Science Education

The Centre for Health Science Education’s primary responsibility is the development of teaching expertise in the Faculty of Health Sciences. This is largely achieved through its Faculty Development programme. Contributing to the work of the Centre are three other units that seek to promote innovative and dynamic health science curricula – community-based education, interprofessional education and research. Two formal education programmes are offered by the Centre.
