In 2014, the Department of Medicine in the Faculty of Health Sciences established the Solly Marks Visiting Professorship Fund in tribute to the legacy of Professor I. N. "Solly" Marks. As founder of the UCT Gastrointestinal Clinic (GIT) at Groote Schuur Hospital, and the South African Gastroenterology Society, Prof Marks made a profound contribution to the development of gastroenterology both locally and internationally. Through the fund, a leading academic gastroenterologist is invited for a 2 week-long visit to interact with students and members of the Faculty. The purpose of the visiting professorship is to provide an on-going stimulus to all aspects of academic gastroenterology and culminates in the delivery of a Solly Marks memorial lecture.
