Master of Surgery Workshop

The Sydney University Master of Surgery Workshop recently took place from Thursday, 26th May to Saturday, 28th May 2022.

The RNSH Master of Surgery Skills workshop was facilitated by a range of consultant surgeons, fellows and registrars and was coordinated by Associate Professor Anthony Glover. The workshop took place at the Sydney Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre in the Kolling building as part of the Surgical Skills SURG5031 Master Surgery subject.
