Where are they now?
We held interviews for medical officers in orthopaedic surgery at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits). This process takes place twice a year, during April/May and October/November. What is striking is the number of applicants vying for only a few posts – in this instance, only seven posts. The question is: What happens to the rest of the candidates who are not successful in getting a post on the teaching/training circuit? In other words: ‘Where are they now?’
