Department of Medicine
Head of Department: Professor B.M. Mayosi
Departmental Profile
The Department of Medicine is a large clinical department
which plays a leading role in medical education and
research, and provides clinical services to the communities
of the Western Cape and, in the case of our highly
specialised services, to patients throughout southern
Africa. The Department consists of 21 clinical and service
divisions, 11 major research units, and four affiliated
departments of medicine at GF Jooste, New Somerset,
II Military, and Victoria hospitals (www.medicine.uct. Each day, members of the department treat an
average of 2,000 patients in our clinics, admit about 100
patients to our hospital services and perform over 210
medical procedures. The department offers a number
of highly specialised services that are unique nationally
such as allergology, bone marrow, heart, kidney, and liver
transplantation, cardiac electrophysiology, endobronchial
ultrasound guided bronchoscopy, and double balloon
enteroscopy for visualisation of the small bowel.
There approximately 80 registrars who are training in the
department, 20 of whom are from other countries such
as Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Malawi, Namibia,
Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The
department produces formularies and guidelines that are
used in most health facilities in South Africa, such as the
South African Medical Formulary
Primary Care 101.
