This is a 140-bedded hospital run by 5 doctors in the Transkei region of the Eastern Cape in South Africa. It’s a deeply rural hospital, allowing for plenty of hands-on experience and a reliance on clinical skills rather than investigations. The main diseases encountered are TB and HIV/AIDS but as a general hospital, there is scope to observe/treat a huge number of common and uncommon conditions, including paediatrics and obstetrics. The hospital has 6 wards: Male, Female, Maternity, Paeds, TB Male, and TB Female, and a busy Out-Patients Department.
Furthermore, the hospital is located about an hour from Umtata (partially along a dirt road), and about 40 minutes from the coastline where one can spend weekends at backpackers or self-catering cottages. The hospital is ideally situated to explore the beautiful Wild Coast, be it to hike, surf, or unwind after the working week.
