On the 17th of March 2018 we had our first Refugee Health Clinic at Groote Schuur Hospital. We provided health screening services to men and women from Scalabrini Centre of Cape Town. Such services included PAP smears (for women), HIV and blood glucose testing, screening for hypertension and TB. In between the screening stations, there was a health promotion session where Dr Gordon engaged with the patients on health issues that most women face.
UCT’s Professor Johannes Fagan was one of six ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons recently awarded a gold medal by the International Federation of Otolaryngology Societies (IFOS) at its four-yearly IFOS World Congress, which was held in Paris in June 2017.
The UCT surgical society committee of 2014-2015 excelled at the leadership awards as a team as well as on an individual level. The committee won its third consecutive Most Outstanding committee award in a row!
During the holidays, 3 members of the UCT Surgical Society travelled to Windhoek, Namibia to attend the third annual International Association of Surgical Societies (IASSS) Symposium which was hosted by the University of Namibia's Surgical Society.
