Carnegie-WITS Alumni Diaspora Programme

Building bridges between past successes and future achievements

The Programme seeks to stimulate research collaboration and networking between our leading health sciences alumni, who now live and work in academic institutions around the globe, and their counterparts at Wits.

The Programme aims to capitalise on and boost the strength of the research networks which already exist, to stimulate dialogue, and help establish further collaborative and exchange partnerships with Wits Alumni at international health research institutions. The HSRO seeks to link with research-active alumni who would be willing to “come home” for short periods of time in order to encourage and foster research in the Faculty of Health Sciences, to develop research collaborations, to promote exchanges of postgraduate students and to explore the building of other joint initiatives.
