DUDLEY, L et al. Re-launch of the South African Society of Medical Managers (previously known as the Medical Administrators Group). SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.1, pp. 23-23. ISSN 2078-5135.

Medical management is a recognised specialty in many developing and developed countries, including Australia, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. In South Africa it was recognised as a sub-specialty in the 1990s, but this is no longer the case. The South African Society of Medical Managers, in close collaboration with the Division of Medical Management of the College of Public Health Medicine of South Africa, has been working to re-establish the specialty of medical management in South Africa. Well-trained specialist medical managers would play a significant role in the effective and efficient implementation of National Health Insurance and primary healthcare re-engineering through the practice of evidence-based health care, clinical economics and administrative medicine.
