The Graduate School of Business (GSB) has appointed Dr Shadrick Mazaza as a senior lecturer in health management.

The post was made possible after the Atlantic Philanthropies donated funds to the Oliver Tambo Fellowship Programme. The programme is a partnership between the GSB's corporate learning division and the UCT School of Public Health and Family Medicine to develop management skills among senior public-health officials.

Mazaza, the president and board chairman of the South African Academy of Family Practice/Primary Care, has extensive experience in the field. He obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Manchester in 1979 and completed specialist training at UCT. Last year he obtained his master's degree in family medicine from UCT.

In 1991 he worked in the community healthcare clinics for the City of Cape Town and for the Cape Clothing Industry Sick Fund, opening the Athlone Clinic for clothing industry employees and their families.

Mazaza is also a member of the board of directors of The South African Medical Association (SAMA).
