COVID-19 disruptions to College events
RACS has made the difficult decision to cancel all RACS courses, forums, events and face-to-face committee and related meetings for a period of one month with effect from Monday 9 March 2020.
We felt it necessary to take this additional step given the unfolding situation in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Held in the RACS skills lab, participants (32 at each event) rotate in small groups through four workstations, to experience hands-on practical skills relevant to the surgical speciality being featured.
In 2019, there were over 300 students registered, with FLS, Plastic, Urology, Vascular and Orthopaedic surgery featuring across the three workshops.
These workshops are extremely popular and are only open to final year medical students
Three workshops will be held in 2020:
- 23 May
- 27 June
- 18 July
Registrations will open late February 2020.
All Victorian final year medical students will receive an email through their university inviting them to register for the workshops late in February 2020.
