The Renal Unit at Groote Schuur Hospital has over the past 15 to 20 years trained many International Society of Nephrology (ISN) Fellows from all over Africa, who have subsequently gone back to their countries of origin and become leaders in their field. They are listed below - apologies to any whom we may have left out - please let us know!

Because of this, and our ongoing capacity for training and research in all aspects of nephrology, the ISN has certified us as an official ISN  Regional Training Centre
