The Department consists of the following three main components:
Our main training centers are Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital (IALCH) in Durban and Greys Hospital in Pietermaritzburg (PMB). Our training program in Durban extends to King Edward, Addington, R K Khan, Prince Mshiyeni Hospitals. Brand-new Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial hospital is an addition to our training.
We strive to provide excellent and reliable radiological services to our clients (patients and clinicians). We use the private sector and international radiology departments to benchmark our standard of practice. Our training program aims to produce well rounded, meticulous and passionate radiologists and radiographers.
Rotation of our specialists in training to different regional hospitals ensures exposure to a wide range of pathology as well as exposure to and experience at different levels of the health care system. Our training program is for a 4-year duration. We offer opportunities to young doctors to explore radiology as a field of specialization as medical officers with an aim of grooming them to become registrars in the department of radiology.
We encourage undergraduate medical students to visit the department of radiology and also choose to do their electives in the department of radiology.
There is a close working relationship between academic and clinical support staff. The main focus of the majority of the consultant’s is to provide clinical services to patients within the KZN province. Our consultants are encouraged to involve themselves in teaching and training as well as research activities.
