Editorial:Transforming the Academy
Readers of this journal and members of the South African Academy of Family Practice/Primary Care (SAAFP) will know that the SAAFP is currently going through a process of profound change, which started during January 2006.1 The main driver behind this was the ideal to form a single organisation that could serve the needs of academic family medicine in South Africa, both in the private and public sectors, in close collaboration with the universities. This process gained more momentum when family medicine finally became a specialty with the HPCSA at the beginning of 2007.
