13 years is correct: Degree: MBChB degree - UKZN, UCT, UFS, UL, UP, US, WSU, Wits. - Theoretical training: 5 years. - Student internship: 1 year. - Practical work at a hospital: 1 year (also known as the house doctor year). Post-graduate study for specialization as a dermatologist: MMed or FCP(SA): 4 years. Once you have completed the six year MBChB degree, then you are a doctor. And then you should start earning some money, that would be in the "house doctor year". You could opt for a loan, or a bursary http://www.vukuzenzele.gov.za/Pages/Educ... Before commencing post-graduate study for specialization as a dermatologist the candidate must: have held a MBChB degree for 2 years and have been registered as a medical doctor with the Health Professions Council of South Africa for 1 year. Special courses in Dermatology are available at UKZN, UFS, UP and US. On successful completion of the examination to qualify as a specialist, candidates register with the IMDC as a Dermatologist.

I agree with you. I live in South Africa, and as a journalist and a news paper reader my heart breaks every day because of what people do to children. I truly believe that a soul of a nation is reflected in how one treats children. I remember one story of a 16 month old little girl,. She was snatched away from her mom, raped and abandoned on an open field. It was my first page lead, but I when I got home I cried as the thoughts of this baby girl having to undergo 2 operations was horrific. It is not only men who are to blame, but also women. We women should treat our sons and daughters equally. We should not treat our child more special and with less rules just because he is a boy. In South Africa, in many communities boys are treated with more privileges than girls. Many of them do not learn about respect towards women. This needs to stop. And we women have a crucial role in this.

The whole situation is sad and disturbing I agree, but what it really comes down to is money. I remember watching a news special about a rare sort of cancer in some children that was able to be cured but since only a couple hundred cases were established the pharmaceutical companies didn't feel it was cost effective to manufacture the treatment. A child's life was out weight by monetary value, but it happens everyday everywhere it seems. Good luck on your fight and cause!

You're thirteen and this life isn't as glamorous as it seems. Take dance, acting, singing lessons if your parents will allow it but don't get your hopes up. If you can get into the business it may fast lose its appeal or even spit you out. Be careful and think about your choices. Is it really worth the investment?

It is very plausible that 99 or 100% of Afrikaners consider themselves Christian. I'm pretty certain that if you were to hand out polls on religion that 99% of them would tick the Christianity box. My interaction with other Afrikaners my age has actually gotten me to think that at least 20% of them, although Christian by admission, live lifestyles and have opinions about Religion, spirituality etc that seems much closer to that of atheists actually. That tick in the Christianity box, might in many cases only be because of tradition than actual belief. **Edit** I'm in my mid twenties. I've only met 1 self proclaimed Afrikaans atheist and his fiance of 4 years left him because he refused to get married in a church. To define atheist as used above, I suppose it would be something in between believing in no higher power and believing in a higher power but different from the Biblical God. The way they tend to act suggest belief in no higher power, while the rest mostly just seem confused on matters of Christianity in general. A very small percentage of my friends are actually devoted Christians (I count myself among these), that regularly attend church, believe in a biblical God and Jesus as Saviour. On a personal note, I went through a really tough patch, belief wise about 2 years after I left school and I just questioned everything, the Bible, it's authenticity, evolution vs creationism, gosh, you name it, i questioned it. I have a bit of a love for science and when you scientifically want to prove that God exists your setting yourself up for failure. For about 2/3 years I was just floating around not knowing what to believe (similar to many of my friends now, I guess). I just reached a point that I realized that regardless of proof and what not, you can see the hand of a higher power in the world (and in my life) and I really liked Christianity, I believe that historically even though the Bible was put together by a pagan at some council 1500 years ago, those are still historic records with fact in them and that is, as things stand in my life now, enough to fuel my belief. I believe in God and I believe in Jesus and my personal experiences (too personal too flaunt here I think) was more than enough too get me believing in it.

Afrikaners would be 100% Christian at some level. Statistically 70% of the Black population state Christianity as their religion. The Moslem sector of South Africa are generally very devout. The Animists are equally devout. The Hindus are certainly very active but there is some movement to Christianity particularly in the lower caste segment (the reason I think is obvious) If religion is not gaining ground it is certainly holding its own. There is a trend in Africa for former Christians to adopt Islam, this has not manifested itself largely in South Africa...if at all. A lot of Christian missionary work is still carried out and Islam is also spreading the message through their burgeoning Madrassas. I regard myself as a Protestant Christian and my value system is based around this, but in practise feel that all Religions have lessons to give.
