Centre for Health Professions Education
The Stellenbosch University Medical Education Partnership Initiative (SURMEPI) was established in 2010 as a result of a PEPFAR-funded grant via the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI). Through this grant, SU became one of only eleven institutions across sub-Saharan African to be drawn into MEPI. Given SURMEPI's focus on Medical Education, it was inevitable that the CHPE became a key collaborator with SURMEPI from the start. A number of the CHPE staff are either directly or indirectly involved in SURMEPI's various projects and activities. SURMEPI has also served as a catalyst to the work of the CHPE and, in particular, helped to strengthen its outputs (4 publications in 2014).
