Established as one element of Discovery Holdings’ Black Economic Empowerment transaction, the Discovery Foundation is an independent trust that invests in developing South Africa’s scarce specialists healthcare resources. It does this through four separate awards programmes:

  • Rural Fellowship Awards aim to attract and keep medical doctors in rural areas by facilitating access to resources and opportunities to develop professionally;
  • Sub-specialist Awards aim to address the shortage of funded training posts in HPCSA-registered sub-specialties at accredited South African academic and affiliated institutions;
  • Academic Fellowship Awards aim to promote research-focused training in academic medicine in South Africa; and
  • Excellence Awards aim to boost healthcare resources by recognising an organisation that shows excellence in the sector.
