Abstract

The Faculty of Health Sciences holds an annual Undergraduate Research Day in which undergraduate students from Health and Rehabilitation programmes and from the MBChB programme present their research. Approximately 100 students presented their research in 31 oral and poster presentations at the 2015 annual research day held on 15 October. The event showcases student research conducted as self- initiated research or from course work from undergraduate programmes in the Faculty. It engenders an enthusiasm for enquiry and promotes the importance of formal research. This is in line with UCT's ethos of being a research intensive university and the Faculty's intention of producing professional who are life-long learners and engage in research.
