Change the world



A welcome from the Acting Director of School, Dr Elizabeth du Toit

Welcome to the School of Medicine at Nelson Mandela University, based at Missionvale in Gqeberha. We are the country’s tenth and newest Medical School and are committed to training the Mandela Doctor, a primary health care oriented, fit for purpose doctor who can contribute so positively to society. Bright futures await our graduates, but we are reminded that this is a profession that addresses a basic human right, that of available, accessible and affordable health for all. It is our privilege and honour to facilitate your learning towards this noble calling. It requires much work and dedication on the part of the student and the teacher. We wish all our students well as they progress on their stimulating and rewarding journey to become Medical Doctors.
