In association with the Department of Surgery of the University of the Witwatersrand, and the Trauma Units at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital, and Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital training programme in Trauma and Trauma Critical Care is available at variable levels specifically intended for non-South Africans who wish to be exposed to a comprehensive training in the management of major trauma. These posts are, however, unpaid, and must be funded entirely from external sources. We work closely with the other hospitals and the University in this regard.
Applicants will be required to register with the Health Professions Council, and posts are normally tenable up to a maximum of two years. The Unit will assist with registration via the University of the Witwatersrand.
