We are actively involved at all levels of teaching pulmonary and intensive
care medicine. At undergraduate graduate level we mainly teach medical students of our own
Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Stellenbosch University. Due to our strong
international collaboration we also have an increasing number of overseas
medical students who join us for electives usually of one to several months
At postgraduate level we train our own registrars rotating through the
division on a 6-monthly basis. Further, there is at least one training fellow in
pulmonary subspecialty training at any given time.
At superspecialist level we usually have in between one and four
international training/research fellows from various countries all over the
world. They primarily join the division for its expertise in thoracic oncology,
more specifically in Internventional Pulmonology, encompassing most known
diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in Bronchoscopy and Thoracoscopy.
We also offer hands-on work shops in Interventional Pulmonology, including
the various aspects of Thoracic Ultrasound
