Staff at the UCT Data Center are actively involved in running the MPH course of the School of Public Health and Family Medicine and lead the module on the epidemiology of infectious diseases. In addition, they supervise the MPH and PhD students as well as undergraduate MBChB students undertaking their public health module. A number of UCT postgraduate students have transitioned to working in the health services of the Western Cape Department of Health and to research in resource-limited settings. This, together with our support for site investigators undertaking their own analyses, confirms their commitment to building local capacity for research.
