To the Editor: In 2009 a meeting took place between the then Chief of Operations of the Gauteng Health Department, Dr A Rahman, and the academic and clinical heads of Internal Medicine at the three academic hospitals of the University of the Witwatersrand, Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital (CHBAH), Helen Joseph Hospital (HJH) and Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital. Two problems were highlighted: the Department of Internal Medicine had too few subspecialty training posts to accommodate the large number of applicants; and the three cluster hospitals (Sebokeng, Leratong and Edenvale) served by the department were unable to fill their vacant specialist posts.
