South African Institute of Health Care Managers

Welcome to South African Institute of Health Care Managers!

SAIHCM believes that appropriate training in health care management enhances the status and competence of health care managers. Its purpose is to advocate for professionalization of healthcare management and to promote the view that appropriate training and relevant qualification are pre-requisites to the development of efficient health care managers suited for the 21st millennium service demands.

Through leadership and support for appropriate professional development and training, education and research programmes, SAIHCM gives recognition to health care management (will provide leadership and a foundation for the development of a cadre of health care managers) as a specialised field critical to providing a cadre of health professionals necessary to shape acceptable standards of health care for the country.
