Next weeks tuts!

Hi guys,

Please don’t forget about the two tuts by
Prof Dan Berkowitz next week. Since the program is still under suspension, make the effort to go to show Prof Lundgren and management that you are serious about getting teaching reinstated. It will reflect very poorly on the department if attendance is poor.

Here is the program:

Tue 4 August: Arginase endothelial function and atherosclerosis; Bara; 17:00

Thurs 6 August: Remote ischaemic preconditioning; CMJAH; 17:00

Please spread the word to all the registrars and post DA MOs.



Visiting Prof from Johns Hopkins University

How guys,

Prof Dan Beekowitz will be visiting us in August and will be giving two tuts to the registrars during his stay. They should be beneficial to both the part 1 and part 2 candidates.

Tue 4 August: Arginase endothelial function and atherosclerosis; Bara; 17:00

Thurs 6 August: Remote ischaemic preconditioning; CMJAH; 17:00

Please spread the word.


Meeting with Prof Lundgren today!

Hi guys,

Unfortunately the Part 1 program has once again been suspended. This due to the poor/non attendance of tuts. This is extremely embarrassing, disrespectful and disappointing to the department. It is the first time in the history of wits that we have cancelled the program, not to mention that this is the second time in less than 3 months.

Prof Lundgren would like to meet with all the pre part 1 candidates after the refresher course today. It is in your own best interests to make the effort to attend. Please spread the word to the registrars that don’t follow the blog.
