The School of Clinical Medicine (SOCM) remains the largest school in the Faculty. It has hosts nine major departments (Family medicine, Paediatrics, Surgery, Internal medicine, Radiation sciences, Neurosciences, Anaesthesia, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Psychiatry) and three centres (Steve Biko Centre for Medical Bioethics, Wits Centre for Rural Health and Centre for Palliative care).
The SOCM is still the highest contributor to the publication output in the Faculty. There has been an increase in the number of publications during this period. The service workload and teaching responsibilities remain an impediment to reaching our full publication potential. Despite the workload challenges several members of the school have been promoted to Senior Lecturer, Adjunct Professor, Research Professor and Full Professor as a result of their scholarly activities. The School has had an increase of NRF rated scientists following the latest assessment. The School has seen a significant increase in the number of Masters of Medicine qualifying and is a major supplier of specialists in the country. The number of PhDs awarded from the School continues to be on an increase with younger colleagues graduating.
The Master of Medicine is offered at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
