Dr Jocelyn Hellig

  • Specialist Physician and Endocrinologist
MBChB (UCT) cum laude FCP (SA) MMed Int Med (SU) Certificate in Endocrinology and Metabolism (Phys) cum laude Dr Jocelyn Hellig completed her MBChB at the University of Cape Town in 2008, where she graduated top of her class. She then spent her two years of internship at McCord Hospital in Durban, after which she returned to Cape Town for her community service training at the former GF Jooste hospital in Mannenberg - a place that cemented her love for the challenges of internal medicine. Jocelyn then pursued a career in internal medicine straight after completing her community service. She started her registrar training at Tygerberg hospital in 2012 and completed her degree in 2015. She served as vice-chairperson of the registrar committee for two years and had a special interest in undergraduate teaching. She started her fellowship training directly after completing her internal medicine degree. As a fellow, she developed a passion for postgraduate teaching and the improvement of health care delivery in a resource-constrained setting. ​Jocelyn obtained her certificate in endocrinology cum laude in late 2017. She has presented her own research at local conferences and has published on diabetes in two local journals. She maintains a strong academic link with the division of endocrinology at Tygerberg Hospital and is also a member of SEMDSA and NOFSA. She is currently completing her MPhil at Stellenbosch University on the relationship between osteoporosis and distal radius fractures. ​When she’s not at work or studying, you’ll probably find Jocelyn in a coffee shop, wandering around the Zeitz MOCAA or cooking too much food for friends.
