Dr Heide Hart – Oncologist
Dr Heide Hart grew up in Pretoria, matriculated from Pretoria Girls High School in 1999 and received her MBChB degree at the University of Pretoria in 2005.
She completed her internship at Johannesburg’s Tembisa Hospital gaining experience in surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthetics and orthopaedics. For her community service year, she stayed on at Tembisa Hospital as a medical officer in the Department of Surgery.
Thereafter, followed a three-year stint in medical marketing at pharmaceutical giant Roche while she also worked as a locum in various emergency units in Johannesburg. At Roche, she started out as a Medical Advisor in the field of Renal and Transplant medicine, but moved across to its Oncology division.
Although she always had a desire to help patients, she had not found the correct field in medicine until she discovered that Oncology would allow her to pursue innovative medical treatments, as well as allow her to make a real difference in the lives of her patients.
