n Historia - Black medical education and struggles against apartheid in South Africa
A School of Struggle: Durban's Medical School and the Education of Black Doctors in South Africa, Vanessa Noble : book review

Volume 59, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0018-229X



Aptly entitled , Vanessa Noble's book is a vital contribution to South Africa's burgeoning medical historiography and its niche lies in its focus on the apartheid era's University of Natal Medical School for black candidates. Although a few of South Africa's iconic teaching hospitals such as Groote Schuur (in Cape Town), and Baragwanath Hospital (in Johannesburg), have recently received book length analyses illuminating some of the issues covered in Noble's book, the rich and complex medical history of South Africa would be incomplete without a thorough analysis of the country's main producer of black medics during the apartheid era.
