In 1991, the South African community partnerships began to develop socially accountable models for health professions education, research and service through structured partnership between communities, academic institutions and the health service authorities within a specific geographic region so as to enhance the health status of these communities.
This paper describes the interdisciplinary education activities of the partnerships through three case studies.
An analysis of the benefits of these activities to faculty, community, service providers and students and the factors promoting or inhibiting interdisciplinary education is provided.
The authors also offer insights to clarify the roles of faculty, community, service providers and students in interdisciplinary education.
The discussion is placed in the context of the developing South Africa in the post-apartheid era.
