Prof. Letticia Moja (pictured), Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of the Free State (UFS), has resigned from her position to take up the post of Principal and Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Limpopo, MEDUNSA Campus.

She will take up her post at MEDUNSA as from 1 August 2009.

“It is with sadness and with appreciation of all the work Prof. Moja has done in the Faculty of Health Sciences that we are making this announcement,” said Prof. Gert van Zyl, Head of the School of Medicine in the Faculty.

Prof. Moja joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in early 2002 to take up the position of Deputy Dean. At this point in time, she made a significant contribution towards alleviating the workload within the faculty and immediately took over some strategic issues from the office of the Dean, including issues pertaining to equity, selection, research and transformation.

She was just settling within the Faculty when the sudden death of the then Dean, Prof. CJC Nel, obliged her to take over as Acting Dean of this Faculty. Prof. Moja acted as Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences for ten months before she was appointed as the Dean on 1 December 2003.

After her appointment, Prof. Moja also obtained her MBA Degree from the UFS and made significant contributions at national and international level. She was recipient of the Shoprite Checkers Woman of the Year Award. She was also Chairperson of the National Committee of Medical Deans and was elected Vice-President of the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

In addition, Prof. Moja served on a number of accreditation teams, both at national and at health sciences level. She continued with excellent work in the Faculty of Health Sciences and, via the three schools, namely the School of Allied Health Professions, the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing, contributed significantly to the quality of human resources at national level.

The UFS wishes her all of the best with her new endeavours.
