Learning experience in business, financial and lifestyle management for South African healthcare professional

The Professional Provident Society (PPS), the financial services group that exclusively serves graduate professionals, has established the South African Health Business Academy (SAHBA), the first institution of its kind in South Africa dedicated to medical and healthcare professionals.

SAHBA aims to enable emerging and established private practice principals to build and grow future-ready businesses.

The Academy’s sustained training programme commences in November 2023 in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The curriculum is designed to support health professionals as they progress through their career stages, from public to private practice, growing established practices, through to preparation for practice succession. As SAHBA grows in strength, PPS will introduce additional, tailored value-added programmes and masterclasses.

skills we do not learn in medical training
programmes. I feel more confident, I have
the contacts to expand my choices of how
I wish to work as a medical specialist.”*
