Dr Vuyane Mhlomi

Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Quro Medical

Dr Vuyane Mhlomi grew up in Khayelitsha, South Africa, and studied Medicine at the University of Cape Town, where he completed his degree with distinctions in preclinical, clinical and final clinical examinations, which culminated in the awarding of his degree with first class honours. In 2014, Vuyane was awarded the Rhodes Scholarship and after two and half years, at the age of 29, he completed his Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil/PhD) at the University of Oxford. In 2017, Vuyane was awarded the prestigious Pershing Square Scholarship to study a Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Oxford and was selected by the University for Poets & Quants as one of top 100 most promising MBA graduates in the world.

Dr Mhlomi has not only excelled academically, but his leadership progression has been nothing short of remarkable – from being appointed head boy at high school, through various leadership activities at medical school and in the University of Cape Town at-large. This culminated in his receiving three of seven university-wide student leadership awards in his last year at university – an achievement which was unprecedented. Since then, he has continued to demonstrate leadership through various social development channels. He has not only been named as one of South Africa’s top young leaders in South Africa but has also been invited to speak on health care and youth development on several national and international platforms – in the United States, Europe and across Southern Africa. During his time at Oxford, Vuyane was elected Vice President of Oxford Africa Society and appointed Junior Dean of New College, Oxford, a role he held for three and half years.

Fascinated by the intersection of healthcare, science and business, Vuyane was inspired to evade the conventional career path and take the start-up plunge with Quro Medical and Emergent Healthcare Group (EHCG), young companies that seek to transform healthcare in Southern Africa. Currently, he serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Quro Medical and Chairman of EHCG.

Vuyane is also founder of MH Foundation, an educational non- profit organisation that identifies and nurtures academically talented learners from socioeconomically underprivileged neighbourhoods of South Africa.
