FAMILY MEDICINE REGISTRARS
From February 2017 we enter a new, exciting era at Zithulele - training Family Medicine specialists as a satellite campus of Walter Sisulu University.
Dr Nick Fine
Nick is a Wits graduate who joined us for community service in 2015 after an internship at Baragwanath and couldn't tear himself away. He is interested in primary care, HIV and pain management and has a diploma in palliative medicine. He enjoys cricket and soccer, socialising and exploring new things. (And good wine.) Having always lived in a city until now, he is a convert to the joys of rural living.
Dr Philippa Scotcher
Squiggy (her ID says Philippa, but her real name is Squiggy), is a Stellenbosch graduate who did her internship in Pietermaritzburg and community service here in 2016. She was the 9th doctor to come back to Zithulele after a student elective! Her interests are a good fit for our context: rural healthcare, HIV medicine, primary health care and health systems . Outside of work she enjoys meeting new people, be it hiking, trail running, travelling or just in a good book.
