Overview

Sydney Medical School is home to the largest academic surgical discipline in Australasia. Its courses aim to provide an understanding of the principle of applying the best available research evidence to patient care, as well as the skills required for clinical research.

The surgical anatomy stream in the Graduate Certificate in Advanced Clinical Skills provides a sound knowledge and understanding of human anatomy that underpins successful surgical practice through a series of whole-body cadaveric dissections taught in small groups by subspecialist surgeons. It is regarded as the gold standard in anatomy tuition and places are strictly limited. The course also provides a pathway for registrars or registered medical officers to prepare for the human anatomy knowledge requirement of the Part 1 Surgical Primary examination delivered by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
