SURGERY 7050HO - Surgical Science and Clinical Practice I

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 1 - 2014

The course will provide comprehensive clinical training to a high level of competency in surgical thinking, techniques and practice. This course will extend students beyond acquisition of essential knowledge and skills to also develop the scholarly skills of reflection and critical thinking essential for independent clinical practice. Students will be able to demonstrate they have reflected on and developed their own surgical technique and practice and they understand what constitutes an appropriate surgical environment and know the ethical basis of consent issues for surgery. Clinical tuition will be given on the wards and in theatres and by attendance and participation at departmental ground rounds. Tutorial and clinical skills sessions will also develop clinical skills in case analysis, decision making, as well as proficiency skills in a range of surgical technologies, techniques and instrumentation.
