VAN DER SPUY, Zephne M; DYER, Silke J; JEFFERY, Stephen T and DENNY, Lynette A. The gynaecological subspecialties: Advances in women's health. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2012, vol.102, n.6, pp.419-421. ISSN 2078-5135.
Under Professor Dennis Davey's leadership, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology recognised the need for subspecialist expertise and training. Thus, the gynaecological subspecialties were developed, the first of which was gynaecological oncology. We review the research, and subsequent clinical application, which has evolved from the subspecialist units.
