Before specialising in Dermatology, Dr Heydenrych obtained a Diploma in Anaesthetics and Hons BSc in Nuclear Medicine (Stellenbosch University).
Dr Heydenrych is a director and co-founder of the Cape Town Cosmetic Dermatology Centre and is currently in full-time private practice. Her own training company, HeyEd , was conceived during the past year as a forum for practical injectable training .
Due to her passion for teaching, Dr Heydenrych holds an Honorary Consultant’s position in Aesthetics at Stellenbosch University, where she pioneered formal aesthetic training for Dermatologists. Over the past 4 years she initiated the Short Course in Cosmetic Dermatology (SCCD) for qualified Dermatologists as well as the Dermatology Aesthetic Review Meetings (DARM) which have now evolved to include multiple fraternities at national meetings. She has also instituted formal registrar training (RATS) for the registrars of both Cape Town and Stellenbosch Universities, an initiative, which is to extend to the University of KwaZulu-Natal as of 2017. Over the past year HeyEd was conceived as a private training forum in the realisation that in structure there is freedom, but in sharing there is joy.
