New Programs for junior doctors seeking a career in surgery - Graduate Programs in Surgical Science
The Graduate Programs in Surgical Science are academic qualifications designed for students who are eligible to practice medicine in Australia and are planning a career in surgery or a proceduralist speciality.
The content of the programs are based on the JDocs Framework from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and informed by the nine competencies the RACS expect of surgeons: medical expertise, judgment (clinical decision-making), technical expertise, professionalism and ethics, health advocacy, communication, collaboration and teamwork, management and leadership, and scholarship and teaching.
The Master of Surgical Science will provide students with foundational knowledge and skills relevant for entering surgical training as well as the opportunity to complete a minor thesis. Students will benefit from working as a doctor while they are studying as some subjects require students to draw on their clinical experience. Most subjects require attendance at up to two study days and up to two webinars each semester.
Enrolment are open till 14 February. Please contact Prof Debra Nestel firstname.lastname@example.org before enrolling.
