Centenary of the UCT Faculty of Health Sciences
UCT’s Medical Faculty and Groote Schuur Hospital
A relationship has existed between the University of Cape Town’s Medical Faculty (MF) and Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH) since the MF was established in 1912. However, this was not formalised until the first Joint Staff Agreement was signed in 1951. This close and rewarding association achieved outstanding results and produced significant benefits for both institutions over many years, despite intermittent problems and disputes. More recently, difficulties have been experienced, but it is hoped that these will be overcome.
