Each candidate will perform these under the guidance and supervision of experienced faculty members. Each candidate will be assessed at the end of the day which will include knowledge of anatomy, demonstration of relevant techniques, communication and teamwork.

This course is accredited by The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
