That the Walter Sisulu University medical school continues to exist and to produce competent health professionals is evidence of extraordinary institutional resilience. The school is located in a university with a troubled history. But even as the university has lurched from crisis to crisis and has periodically been under threat of closure, the medical school has developed and grown to become the university's premier centre of excellence and, it has often been said, its raison d'etre, thanks in large part to sheer grit, commitment and sense of mission on the part of its leaders and academic community.
