Wits Healthcare Innovation

Student Society

The Wits Health Innovation Student Society is dedicated to the growth of learners across the university.

We are a society focused on innovation in healthcare.  

Working with students from all Wits faculties, we aim to challenge students to help find the creative solutions needed to solve problems in healthcare in South Africa.


Three Pillars


We expose our members to the ever-evolving world of innovation through hosting thought-provoking events.


Up-skilling South Africa’s youth is integral to what we want to achieve. Our members will gain vital skills during workshops and tutorials geared at equipping us for a future where technology and innovation is integral to every industry.


We contribute to the development of real solutions to South Africa’s health problems through various innovation drives and events.
