Cameron Joseph is a medical student in his fifth year at the University of Cape Town. Despite his youth, Joseph is ambitious and outgoing, already making a significant impression on all those who encounter him. As a clinical student, he rotates through various specialties and their respective clinical teams, helping to manage the care of patients every step of the way. Over the course of his undergraduate studies, Joseph has taken every opportunity to invest his time where it counts. “The biggest surprise of my career thus far was the opportunity to collaborate with world-leading specialists such as paediatric cardiology professor Liesl Zuhlke at Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital,” says. “It’s inspiring to work alongside doctors who embody the best qualities of a healthcare professional.” When not on duty, Joseph has also found the time to write for publications both locally and internationally on healthcare-related topics.
