WHSL Family Medicine: Theses and Dissertations

Finding Wits theses & dissertations

Wits Theses & Dissertations may be found by searching the University catalogue (eWits).  From 2006, theses and dissertations are also available in electronic format and may also be found by searching WIReDSpace.   There is a link below.

To use the catalogue to find a thesis, just look it up as if you were looking for a book. (e.g. look using a Medical subject heading) Then , when you have some results on the screen, open "Limit/sort search", and choose the material type "Theses". Submit and the results will exclude all books and journals, and you will retrieve only theses.

If you are looking for a print thesis to get an idea of how these are put together, look up the shelf number (eg WB 105 for Emergency Medicine) and browse the these shelves in the library. 


Electronic theses & dissertations (ETD)

Electronic Theses and Dissertations  (ETD) is one of the communities in the University's WIReDSpace (Wits Institution Respository on DSpace). This is a digital service that collects, preserves and distributes digital material.
