The Anatomy of Complications Workshops aim to improve the performance of specialist obstetricians and gynaecologists in the area of ‘the prevention and management of complications in obstetric and gynaecological surgery’. This 1.5-day programme is an intensive, hands-on learning experience dealing with inadvertent injury to urological, gastrointestinal and major vascular structures.
Medical students, enrolled in a Doctor of Medicine (year 3 or 4 only), are expected to assist in the role of a third surgical assistant and scrub/scout nurse. An appreciation of this role is anticipated to have been gained through completing year 3 rotations in either Obstetrics and Gynaecology, or Surgery. An understanding of common surgical instruments, surgical sharps safety etiquette and proficiency in basic suturing skills are required. 3rd year students should have completed the applicable clinical practice unit in Semester 1 before applying to attend.
There is a limit of nine (9) medical students per workshop.
If you’d like to assist during the workshops please select a ‘ticket’ and complete the expression of interest that follows (there is no fee charged). We’ll be in contact with genuine applicants and provide a workshop program with further details.
You must be available from 7:45am – 5.30pm on the Friday and 8am – 1pm on the Saturday, it is not possible to only attend part of the workshop.
