  • Our International Alumni community are a select group of students and staff who, through their respective academic journeys at the University of Stellenbosch Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, provide continued inspiration to our current and future international students. 

  • The International Alumni Community are an integral aspect of the Faculty Internationalisation strategy, and form an integral building block that can build and contribute to a shared FMHS legacy of excellence in learning, teaching and clinical training.


The time spend at FMHS has definately impacted my further personal career in Cardiac Anaesthesiology and my work at cardiac surgery intensive care unit. Apart from the supportive learning environment during daily work there has been a much respected personal relation to my local colleagues ​Dr. Hanning von Spiegel, Germany
The surgery department gave me a warm welcome and gave me a lot of opportunities to make the most of this experience. The gained knowledge and skills will be of great value for the rest of my professional career. Dr Kaij Treskes, Trauma Surgeon, Netherlands
It's been a humbling, educative and eye-opening month, and I am so glad for the opportunity to have been welcomed into the Khayalitsha community. Thank you very much for all your help! Dr Jennifer He, Emergency Medicine Resident, Canada
