RECRUITMENT PROCESS

AHP is the only organisation in South Africa with experience in navigating the recruitment and regulatory processes for local and foreign-qualified healthcare professionals.

We assist resilient doctors and other healthcare professionals that are interested in developing a career in a global health setting.

We find you the right position for your skills and interests - free of charge.

We assist you with medical registration, work visas and a job offer in a South African public health facility.

The registration process is complicated and dependent on a number of factors, including your nationality, where you studied and international agreements.

A Recruitment Officer is assigned to each candidate and will guide you through the entire journey, keeping you updated on your application at each point.

The application process for foreign-qualified doctors can take between 9 and 12 months. Placement for South African citizens can take 3 to 6 months.

Upon arrival, AHP provides clinical, logistical and cultural orientation for foreign-qualified health professionals.

In the last decade, we have supported over 4100 healthcare professionals, who have provided over 28 million consultations to South Africa's most vulnerable people.
