Who are we?
A new profession launched in 2008, Clinical Associates (ClinAs), are university-trained and qualify with a degree. ClinAs are HPCSA registered, medical professionals who work primarily in district hospitals and community health centres around South Africa.
ClinAs are an integral member of the clinical team, and work under the supervision of registered medical practitioners. ClinAs provide medical services ranging from taking patient histories and performing routine examinations, to providing emergency care for acute conditions and managing chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS.
