RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USING THIS GUIDE

1. Firstly, decide which stream best suits your needs noting the distinction between core unit, stream specific core units, and elective units of study.

2. Click on "Units of Study" to see the "Table of Units of Study" to determine which semester the units of interest to you are offered. Note also that some units have prerequisite or corequisite units which must be undertaken before or concurrently respectively, with the unit of interest.

3. Note that Departmental premission is required for some units where there is a capacity limit:
SURG5017 Microsurgery (Limit 10)
SURG5027 Whole Body Dissection 1 (limit 12)
SURG5028 Whole Body Dissection 2 (limit 12)
SURG5029 Whole Body Dissection 3 (limit 12)
SURG5030 Whole Body Dissection 4 (limit 12)
SURG5034 Surgical Anatomy Based on RACS part 1 (limit 12)
SURG5031 Surgical Skills and Practical Professionalism (limit 15)

4. Note particularly the small group of units with prefixes CEPI and PUBH which are available only for students undertaking the Surgical Sciences Stream in and online/distance mode.

5. Proceed to "Units of Study Description" to determine the mode of delivery, description, and assessment of units.

**As an alternative to doing the Elective Units in the Onlline/Distance learning stream, you may wish to do the Research Dissertation option (worth 18 credit points), however please note that your degree will change from Master of Surgery (Surgical Sciences) to Master of Surgery (subspecialty) which will depend upon your Research project. You must still complete the Core Units and Stream Specific Units. Your research does not require you to be domiciled in Sydney. Please contact the if you wish to discuss this option.
