Welcome to the Surgical Education Research and Training (SERT) Institute

Royal North Shore Hospital

The SERT Institute at Royal North Shore Hospital was established in 2017. The SERT Institute promotes, assists and encourages the engagement of surgeons in academic and surgical quality improvement activities that will result in improvement in patient outcomes and clinical care.

The SERT Institute is a clinician initiative to overcome barriers developed in recent years that

impact on the capacity of surgeons to be involved in academic research, clinical auditing, clinical leadership,

teaching, mentoring, clinical governance roles and processes  within the hospital.
