PRESIDENT OF Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA) RECEIVES HONORARY FELLOWSHIP FROM THE COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF PAKISTAN

Professor Johan Fagan, President of the Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA), was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan (CPSP) at its Convocation on 14 January 2023 in Karachi, Pakistan “in recognition of his academic contributions, professional caliber, and his dedicated and long services to the medical profession, particularly in the field of Otorhinolaryngology”.

Prof Fagan was the Chief Guest at the 55th Convocation where the CPSP conferred >1000 memberships and fellowships. In his speech at the Convocation, Prof Fagan thanked the CPSP for reaching out to the CMSA to discuss specialist training and assessment and for establishing ties between the two colleges and countries. Addressing the graduates, he said that Pakistan and South Africa have a great deal in common, both being with similar challenges related to training and retaining medical specialists to provide equitable access to care for their peoples.

Practicing specialised medicine in lower- and middle-income countries like South Africa and Pakistan can be challenging and at time frustrating but can also be highly rewarding” he said. He urged the new specialists “to remain in Pakistan and advised them to continue to read, to conduct research, to grow, to broaden their minds and to share their knowledge and skills by remaining involved with teaching programmes, even as unpaid honorary consultants”. “Take care of yourself and your loved ones, look after your physical and mental well-being, be kind to yourself, take time out and be present at important family events. I ask that you remain humble, remain grounded and never lose your humanity as you live in Pakistan, like South Africa, with its great inequality and poverty”.
