Surgical Anatomy

Study Surgical Anatomy at the University of Sydney

 

Sydney Medical School is home to one of the largest academic surgical departments in Australasia, delivering courses developed and taught by highly regarded clinicians and academics.

The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Clinical Skills (Surgical Anatomy) provides a sound knowledge and understanding of human anatomy that underpins successful surgical practice through a series of whole-body cadaveric dissections taught by subspecialist surgeons. The course acts as an embedded course within the Master of Surgery specifically the Master of Surgery (Surgical Anatomy).

Surgical Anatomy may be completed in two ways: as part of a Master of Surgery (Surgical Anatomy) or the Graduate Certificate of Advanced Clinical Skills (Surgical Anatomy). The Graduate Certificate of Advanced Clinical Skills is half of a Masters.
