Rural E-Cape award winner: ‘my motivation - seeing medicine change lives’
The Eastern Cape’s Rural Doctor of the Year admits that ‘overwhelm’ was her constant companion during her first (community service) year at Zithulele Hospital on the poverty stricken but beautiful Wild Coast. This was in spite of having joined two experienced, dedicated husband and wife couples who had spent years building up a multi-disciplinary team that has since become the envy of rural peers country-wide. She bravely chose to stay with the posting even though a close friend she had applied with was posted to the city.
