Juan Klopper and Lorena Barba in Delft, Holland, for the Global Open Education Conference, April 2018.

Juan Klopper is a medical doctor and surgeon at Groote Schuur Hospital, the academic hospital complex of the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and a senior lecturer in surgery. His specialty is emergency surgery, and he heads the hospital’s Acute Care Surgery unit. He is also the Head of Post-Graduate Surgical Research, the Head of Surgical Education, and the Faculty of Health Science representative on the University Senate Committee for Online Education.
