Doctor Fellowship Bursaries


In anticipation of the opening of the hospital in 2017, and with funding support received from the National Skills Fund (NSF), the Trust has established a bursary scheme to support the skills development of doctors at fellowship level at South African universities.

It is against this background that the Trust is now offering bursaries to South African-registered medical practitioners wishing to specialise in subspecialties required by the Hospital in 2017 and beyond.

If you are currently wishing to further your career in one of the disciplines listed below, you are encouraged to apply.

The fellowships will be for two or three years, depending on the discipline.

The disciplines that will be considered are:

• Paediatric nephrology
• Paediatric cardiology
• Neonatology
• Critical care
• Paediatric cardiothoracic surgery
• Paediatric radiology

• Paediatric anaesthesiology


You are requested to read carefully the Bursary Agreement document before completing the online application form (Link Below) and, more specifically, to note that you may be required to work time equal to your period of studies at the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital, located in Johannesburg.

To assist with administrative efficiency, all bursary applications should ideally come through the hospital’s website. Click Here to ONLINE APPLICATION

Preference will be given to South African citizens and applicants from all designated groups and, where possible, people with physical disabilities.

Proof of professional registration must accompany the application.

Qualifications and references will be subjected to third party scrutiny.

Closing date is 30 November 2016
