Head of the Department
University of Pretoria
Mashudu Tshifularo, Head of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose and throat studies, ENT) at the University of Pretoria (UP), is widely recognised as one of the best ENT specialists in the country. His leadership has contributed greatly to the advancement and transformation of the Department.
He was recently invited to deliver a presentation at the Second International Conference and Exhibition on Rhinology and Otology that was held from 18–20 March in Dubai, UAE. His presentation centred around an epidemiological review of complicated bacterial sinusitis among patients who were admitted and treated at Steve Biko Academic Hospital over a ten-year period. The presentation was lauded as ‘phenomenal and worthy’ by the organisers of the conference. Prof Tshifularo also received recognition for co-chairing a variety of sessions at the conference where the latest advances in the field of ENT medicine were discussed.
