University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Medical School Wall of Fame

3 March 2023

Professors Salim and Quarraisha Abdool Karim have been recognised by the University of KwaZulu-Natal for their leadership, innovation and science to feature on a designated “Medical School Legends Wall of Fame.” 

“Alumni and other individuals who have contributed tremendously to the University and the health space  through their humanitarian work, innovation, science, leadership, research contribution, outreach projects, and contribution to the Department of Health and Government do not get acknowledged,” said Prof Ncoza Dlova, Dean of UKZN’s School of Clinical Medicine.“I felt it is about time that we put them on a pedestal for all to see and additionally get the youth and junior alumni to be inspired by their contribution and hopefully this will rub off and create great mentorship and role modelling,” she said.
