Please note that South Africa doesn’t not offer sexology qualifications, so be on the lookout for anyone who claims to have received a qualification from a South African University.
Below is an excerpt from the South African Sexual Health Association:
For the benefit of the public SASHA wishes to highlight the following:
- There is no accredited specialisation in South Africa in sexual medicine or sexology
- There is no SAQA accredited training in Sexual Medicine – Prospective students of sexology please read the press release from HPCSA.
- Members of SASHA who practice in the field of sexology, do so within the ambit of their registered professional qualifications, and many have received post graduate training in sexology from overseas institutions.
- Members of the public, when seeking assistance for sexual conditions are strongly advised to check the credentials of the person they seek to consult, by checking on their membership with SASHA and with the Health Professions Council of South Africa here
