The GIT Clinic is one of several special clinics which were established during the 1950's and 60's at Groote Schuur Hospital to accommodate the increasing trend towards sub-specialisation in Medicine. The Clinic was founded during 1959 by Dr I N (Solly) Marks on his return from the United Kingdom and United States where he spent 9 years doing further post-graduate training and research. Under his remarkable leadership and vision, which spanned 3 decades, the Clinic has grown into an internationally recognised gastrointestinal unit with the emphasis on clinical research. One of the major strengths of the Clinic is the strong medico-surgical partnership from its inception and in particular when the surgical presence was formalized in 1982 and with the move to the New Building in 1990.
