About

The UCT Department of Pathology holds an extraordinary collection of teaching specimens that have been accumulated over more than 80 years (originally in the UCT Pathology Museum). These specimens are derived from surgical procedures or autopsies performed at Cape Town teaching hospitals. The collection has been digitised to provide a learning resource for health science students everywhere, but it is especially relevant for those studying at institutions in Africa.
