Hi. I'm currently a medical doctor who since 2012 have been working as a registrar in Family medicine through UCT. This in order to achieve a post graduate degree. I want to know if I could claim university fees and exam fees (or special courses like ACLS) on my tax return?

Unfortunately not, tuition fees are not tax deductible if you are full time employed working as a salaried employee.
