Division of Emergency Medicine
The Division of Emergency Medicine at Stellenbosch University was formed in 2001. Emergency Medicine only became recognised as a speciality by the Health Professions Council of South Africa in March 2003. The College of Emergency Medicine (CEMSA) was subsequently founded in 2004, and the first registrars at Stellenbosch University started in their posts in January 2005.
The division works closely with the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Cape Town
under the banner of Emergency Medicine Cape Town (EMCT)
. EMCT is a joint venture between the two Universities and Western Cape Government: Health.
