A thorough understanding of medical education and careers available in South Africa is offered in this illuminating review. Two key case studies—one exploring the University of Cape Town’s medical school, the other looking at the Walter Sisulu University Medical School—provide insight into the changing curriculum, which emphasizes problem-based learning and the government’s primary healthcare focus. The significant increase in female students and their possible emigration after graduation are also discussed.
