Policy Forum

Posted: 2008/11/25 08:45:38 PM

The December 2008 CMSA Policy Forum is a follow-up to the Policy Forum on Tertiary Academic Medicine and Specialist Training held in October 2007. The aim of the October 2007 Forum was to bring together decision makers and stakeholders to discuss strategic issues with regard to tertiary academic medicine and specialist training in South Africa. The output of the event was agreement to continue to create a forum for discussion on issues relevant to academic medicine and specialist training, and a memorandum was sent to relevant government departments informing them of the CMSA initiative to improve specialist and sub-specialist education.

A particular problem identified at the 2007 October Forum was the lack of policy on academic medicine, a lack of policy on services utilised for the teaching and training of health professionals, and on health workforce planning – especially numbers of specialists and sub-specialists.
