COVID-19 disruptions to College events
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has indeed created a challenge for us all in 2020 and unfortunately, we were unable to provide our Victorian final year medical student’s with these very popular workshops. We are planning to hold three Medical Student’s Surgical Skills Workshops this year in 2021, however these workshops will be dependent on the state of Victoria’s restrictions at the time of the events. .
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 2021:
26th of June
31st of July
4th of September
Registrations will open late February 2021.
All Victorian final year medical students will receive an email through their university inviting them to register for the workshops late in February 2021.
