After graduating from the University of the Free State in 2010 with his medical degree, with distinctions in Internal Medicine, Surgery and Child Health & Psychiatry, Dr André Griesel went on to complete his internship at Dihlabeng hospital in Bethlehem in Eastern Free State. Following these two years, he served the community from Botshabelo District Hospital for the year 2013. In 2014, Dr Griesel felt compelled to further his career and began his training in Internal Medicine through the University of the Free State at Universitas Academic hospital for the next four year.

With his MMed degree in Internal Medicine and Physician certification with the South African Colleges of Medicine certificate (FCP) SA, Dr Griesel pursued the particular interest he developed during this training, Rheumatology. Finally, after working as a registrar in Internal Medicine at the Universitas Academic Hospital in Bloemfontein for the last 4 years, Dr Griesel has opened his private practice at the Life St. Georges Hospital in central Port Elizabeth.

While he is currently completing his certification with the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR), he aspires to do a fellowship in Rheumatology as well as a course in musculoskeletal ultrasound techniques in the near future. With this expertise, Dr André Griesel plans to improve diagnostics in the field of Rheumatology with ultrasound technology.
