About Us

In 2004, Crossroads Education Institute opens its doors in Johannesburg as The Institute for Therapy Advancement. The Institute then changed its name to The Crossroads Institute in 2006. During this time, The Crossroads Education Institute provided unbiased medical educational programs for Interventional Cardiologists and Endovascular Surgeons and their support teams. Due to the need for continuing medical education in other specialities, The Campbell Educational Institute opened to provide programs for healthcare professionals in the fields of Neurosurgery and Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. In 2016, The Crossroads Institute and Campbell Educational Institute merged to form the Crossroads Education Institute which still continues today.

Our philosophy is to provide sub Saharan Africa and Mauritian healthcare professionals with the opportunity to access high quality unbiased continuing medical education programs to advance the standard of holistic patient care in Interventional Cardiology, Endovascular Surgery, Neurosurgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and most recently, Advanced Wound Management. To date, Crossroads Education Institute has hosted 114 international speakers and more than 5 445 delegates in 181 courses.  Programs have catered to the educational needs of consultants, fellows, allied professionals and healthcare funders.

Programs offered by the Crossroads Education Institute are free of charge and this is made possible through an unrestricted medical education grant from Baroque Medical (Pty) Ltd with the support of its international partners, Abbott Vascular International BVBA and Integra Life Sciences.
