ASAIPA National Medical Student Awards 2021

We are calling all Medical Students to the frontline.​

It is time to celebrate our upcoming heroes who have made sacrifices to pursue their studies in medicine. In the last year, we’ve witnessed the unwavering bravery and strength displayed by South Africa’s future healthcare practitioners.

The Alliance of South Africa Independent Practitioners Association (ASAIPA) is a National Network and Representative Organisation, representing the interest of 14 IPA’s, throughout South Africa. ASAIPA`s purpose is to represent all primary healthcare practitioners as well as young professionals within the independent private practice to be part of a multi-disciplinary group and/or referral network of practitioners. We strongly encourage all Medical Students to join our ASAIPA Family and become part of a broad network, reaching all corners of South Africa.

The ASAIPA National Medical Awards have been created as an honorary platform for Independent Private Health Practitioners. This prestige event is hosted by ASAIPA each year. It is ASAIPA`s ambition to encourage all Medical Students, to continue to make a difference in the world and to recognise many of these individuals for their selfless sacrifice made during the surge of the coronavirus pandemic and their studies.

The ASAIPA National Medical Students Awards will be open for all Final Year Medical Students within South Africa. This campaign will allow  Final Year Medical Students to nominate themselves or be nominated by their peers for a life-changing opportunity. All the nominees will have the chance to share their story and reason why they deserve this award in a 3min featured Video, which will also be shared onto our ASAIPA Youtube Talk Channel.
