(Image: NMMU)Melissa Jane CookWith just three doctors to every 100 000 people in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, the province desperately needs qualified medical practitioners.To address the problem, the local Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) medical school is introducing a number of undergraduate healthcare qualifications. The move comes ahead of the government’s National Health Insurance initiative being implemented.The university has already revamped its Faculty of Health Sciences into four new schools, and introduced a new BSc Dietetics degree and a pharmacy assistant’s qualification. It is working closely with the Ministry of Health; the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA); the Council for Higher Education (CHE); provincial government; and Walter Sisulu University; to ensure that an undergraduate degree for medical doctors is in place by 2018.A welcome addition to healthcare needsVice-chancellor Prof Derrick Swartz says on the NMMU website that “There is widespread support from healthcare professionals in the city and region for the creation of a medical school at NMMU, in addition to the expansion of healthcare training programmes, to address urgent needs to support the nation’s healthcare demands.”Prof Vic Exner, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, believes the medical facility will develop a new type of health professional. (Image: NMMU)He adds; “PE (Port Elizabeth) and the region already have a large number of public and private hospitals and clinics, which could benefit from, and contribute significantly to, a new medical school.“NMMU is located, principally, in a major city with all its locational advantages – a strong administrative base, and a rapidly growing Faculty of Health Sciences – on the basis of which a future medical school would be a natural evolutionary step. Naturally, we will have to consult widely, including with other universities, as well as also the Ministries of Health and Higher Education”.In the interim, the university’s academic governing body has approved a three-year clinical associate degree programme – B(CMP) – to start in 2015. The Senate has also approved the course, which awaits final approval by the CHE, HPCSA and the Minister of Health. Clinical associates are qualified to assess patients, make diagnoses, prescribe treatment and do minor surgery under a doctor’s supervision.Other long-term plans include introducing a new four-year degree for emergency medical care practitioners – B(EMC) – for 2014; and new four-year degrees in Radiography (BHS (Radio)); Medical Laboratory Sciences (BHS (Med Lab Sc));and Nursing (BNursing Sc) for 2014.Environmental Health (BHS (EH)) and Biokinetics (BHSc (Biokinetics) degrees are planned for 2015 with new postgraduate degrees including a master’s degree in Dietetics for 2014 and a master’s degree for specialist pharmacists for 2015.The university will take a more trans-disciplinary approach to its training by introducing modules common to all health disciplines. The curriculum will address real workplace needs and that the country needs a new type of doctor, especially when it comes to primary health care.A new type of health professionalNursing, radiography, emergency medical care and clinical associates, for example, will share at least 11 modules. Such an approach will allow for training across a broad community-based platform and provide greater access for accomplished applicants whose schooling may not have been ideal.“It will allow us to develop a new type of health professional and eventually a doctor who chooses to work in the communities most in need,” says Faculty of Health Sciences Dean Prof Vic Exner.NMMU also plans to offer a range of paramedical and healthcare programmes, such as emergency medical care, pharmacy technicians and mid-level healthcare professionals. (Image: NMMU)“Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University is excited about the prospect of a medical school – and so it seems is the larger community, as we have already received had many inquiries about the way forward and the new programmes on offer. A team of experts is meeting on 23 October to work on a blueprint for the medical school. From here on, it’s going to be exciting times ahead,” said NMMU senior manager of communications, Debbie Derry.The university aims to have a fully fledged medical school by 2020.Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) opened on 1 January 2005, after PE Technikon, the University of Port Elizabeth and the Port Elizabeth campus of Vista University (Vista PE) merged. The university has some 27 000 students and 2 500 staff members, and is based on six campuses in the Nelson Mandela Bay metropolis, and in George, 300 km south of Port Elizabeth.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

  • Lebone Village a haven for orphans

    first_imgAccording to a 2012 Unicef report on the State of the World’s Children, South Africa is home to some 1 900 000 children who have lost one or both parents to Aids. These “Aids Orphans” are under 18, and along with possibly being infected with HIV themselves, are vulnerable to violence and hunger, being separated from their siblings, malnutrition and a host of other problems which affect the quality of their lives, and limit their potential.The house is home to 81 children, of whom 48 have been orphaned after losing their parents to HIV/AidsThe scale of the problem is enormous, but the staff members at Lebone Village, in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province, believe they can help.Lebone, meaning light in local language Sotho, was founded in May 2000; Tim and Jaine Rist, of the AIDS Mission Outreach Trust, opened Lebone House as a daycare centre for children infected or affected by HIV/Aids.Since then the organisation has grown, with five focused centres offering children in need the love, care and access to education they sorely need.“The most rewarding part of what we do here is to see a child changing from being sick, neglected and scared into a child who is happy, healthy and enjoying life,” says Anri Holder, caretaker and executive manager at Lebone Village. “To know that we can give each child a future is something very special.”A FIVE-STEP APPROACH TO CAREThe five centres involved in the children’s care are Lebone House, Lebone Agriculture, Lebone Skills Centre, Lebone Counselling and Lebone Edu-Centre.Lebone House is the organisation’s care centre, or orphanage, and aims to provide a family-like environment, with dedicated house managers. The organisation’s members believe it is “easier to build strong children than it is to repair broken adults”.The house is home to 81 children, of whom 48 have been orphaned after losing their parents to HIV/Aids, and, “… daily there are more and more children and people who need Lebone’s care; the needs are always increasing so our aim will always be to help more people on a daily basis”, says Holder. FOOD FOR LIFELebone Agriculture provides for the children’s and community’s food and nutritional needs through gardens growing fruit and vegetables, and raising chickens for their eggs.The on-site bakery produces around 40 loaves of bread a day and supplies the local community with the surplus.The on-site bakery produces around 40 loaves of bread a day and supplies the local community with the surplusThe agricultural arm, with the skills centre, teaches volunteers about growing their own food gardens, and carpentry skills to produce desks, shelves and doors for the centre.EDUCATION AND SOCIAL SUPPORTThe organisation’s edu-centre provides education to pre-schoolers and an after-school programme for children in grades one to 11 to supplement classroom learning. The classes are facilitated by a trained teacher and students can access the internet to help with homework and research for projects.The organisation has a healthy relationship with the University of the Free State that allows for varsity students to provide physical and occupational therapy to the children.The Lebone Counselling and Social Support programme helps people apply for social grants, birth certificates and identification documents from government departments.“Knowing that we are responsible for the future of our children and that they don’t have anyone else to look after them keeps us all motivated to make a difference, ” says Holder. “That and the Grace of God.”PLAY YOUR PARTTo volunteer with, or donate to, Lebone Village, visit its website, send an email, or call the organisation on 051 526 1442.last_img read more

  • Google Selects Kansas City for Its Ultra High-Speed Internet Project

    first_imgLast year, Google put out a call to communities, asking for their interest in becoming an experimental site for the company’s plans to build out an ultra-high speed Internet network. Over a 1000 cities applied for the chance to get Google Fiber, and Google has just announced its selection: Kansas City, Kansas.The proposed network will clock in at speeds about 100 times faster than what most households in America currently have access to, reaching about 1 gigabit per second.The new network will be built in conjunction with the city, according to Google, which says it plans to work closely with local organizations, businesses, and universities as the infrastructure is built. Bringing Americans better access to high-speed Internet is part of this effort from Google and is also part of a U.S. government initiative as well, with its National Broadband Plan. The government recently released a map of broadband availability in the country, highlighting how much work needs to happen to bring better (or in places, any) high-speed Internet access.Access is part of the problem, but so is speed. As we consume more video online – for business and pleasure – broadband speed becomes increasingly critical. Google also hopes that by supporting high-speed Internet, it will in turn spur more innovations around technologies that depend on it, particularly around universities and hospitals.Google says that, pending approval from the Kansas City’s Board of Commissioners, the service will be available beginning next year. It also says it’s looking at ways to bring the same Internet speeds to other countries.

Hector highlights what it takes to apply yourself to that kind of consistent work on this episode of In The Arena, so be sure you listen.Most people’s skill set is poor to mediocre. Successful sales leaders can’t be those people.When Hector LaMarque was asked why many people in the sales world are not achieving the numbers or accomplishments they say they want to achieve, he said it’s because the average person has a poor to mediocre skill set and doesn’t know it. If they do know it, they don’t know what it takes to build the leadership skills that will propel them to new levels of accomplishment. Hector’s philosophy is simple: It takes a lot of hustle, hard work, and a constant commitment to personal and professional growth to build the skills set that leads to success.
