DR SINDISIWE VAN ZYL HEALTH

Glamour (South Africa) - - Front Page -

Idid very well in high school, but then I failed my A-level ex­ams af­ter suf­fer­ing a heart­break. I had to re­peat sub­jects, and I didn’t get into medicine im­me­di­ately. So I ended up do­ing hu­man phys­i­ol­ogy and psy­chol­ogy from 1996-1999. Then, in 2000, I started medicine. It took me 10 years to ful­fil my dream, but it was worth it! I knew that I was go­ing to be a med­i­cal doc­tor since I was four. Help­ing peo­ple makes me very happy, and I chose this ca­reer for that pur­pose.

I’m a very happy and op­ti­mistic per­son, and the work that I do in the HIV sphere re­volves around mak­ing sure that peo­ple who are liv­ing with the virus un­der­stand that it’s not a death sen­tence. When a per­son comes into my con­sult­ing room feel­ing sad and de­spon­dent, and leaves feel­ing as­sured and hope­ful af­ter a ses­sion with me, that is suc­cess. ➻
