Important note regarding Units of Study SURG5027, SURG5028, SURG5029 & SURG5030

A Whole Body Dissection course forms the Graduate Certificate of Advanced Clinical Skills (Surgical Anatomy) and may be completed as a whole body (4 units of study) or may be taken as singular units of study.

SURG5027 Surgical Anatomy of the Head and Neck by Dissection
SURG5028 Surgical Anatomy of the Thorax and Root of the Neck by Dissection
SURG5029 Surgical Anatomy of the Limbs and Back by Dissection
SURG5030 Surgical Anatomy of the Abdomen and Pelvis by Dissection

To be eligible to apply you must have completed an MD/MBBS and be employed in an Australian hospital.

The Graduate Certificate of Advanced Clinical Skills (Surgical Anatomy) may be completed concurrently with the Master of Surgery, and you have the option of applying the credit points towards the Master of Surgery (coursework).

These units of study may also be completed as a non-award student and the eligibility criteria is the same as above.
