Promoting Advanced Surgical Education

NEW course for Surgical Educators

  • 26 – 27 August
  • Brisbane 

Hear from our Chair of Professional Development - Dr Jennifer Chambers OAM - about our NEW course for surgical educators. 

PrASE (Promoting Advanced Surgical Education) is a face-to-face course developed by RACS to take supervisors, surgical educators and Fellows further on their journey to becoming a better surgical teacher and educator. This course builds on Foundation Skills for Surgical Educators, and is suitable for those looking to further develop their skills based on best practice and evidence, but perhaps not quite ready to launch into a Masters program.  

Five interactive modules are delivered over two days by Fellows and medical educators. 

For further details and to register, please visit surgeons.org/education.

The Anatomy of Surgical Exposure

The Anatomy of Surgical Exposure Course is run by James Cook University in association with The Cairns Surgical Society and Queensland Health.

This cadaver-based dissection course instructs surgical trainees and junior surgeons in the techniques of exposure commonly used in open surgical operations. It will be held in the modern anatomy laboratories at the Smithfield campus, under the supervision of experienced surgeons.

This is not primarily an anatomy teaching course; therefore a high degree of anatomical knowledge will be required for successful completion and candidates will be expected to perform procedures. A manual will be available to all registrants for pre-reading.

The curriculum will focus on open general surgery, emphasising emergency and trauma situations. Candidates will be assisted with dissections and assessed on technical ability (knot tying, suture ligation, dissection and anastomosis), anatomical knowledge, and teamwork. The assessments will be based on Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills (OSATS). These are marked during the course and used at the final debriefing exercise.

*Please be aware that this workshop may be cancelled, depending on Queensland Government Covid-restrictions at the time of the event. We strongly recommend that the impact of potential cancellations is taken into account for any travel or accommodations bookings, as well as any quarantine requirements that may be in place in your region.
