The Hamilton Naki Scholarship was introduced because of the shortage of qualified academic leaders in South African medical schools, especially for academic clinicians from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. There were only a handful of African academic doctors with a significant published record of scholarship in South Africa. If academic physicians from the whole population were not recruited and trained, South Africa would lose its ability to train high-quality health practitioners. To address these deficiencies, the Netcare Physician Partnerships Trust established a scholarship to produce world-class academics in all medical specialties to teach and conduct research comparable to other parts of the world.
