St Vincent’s GSSE Education Program 2020

Have you placed Robbins and Cotran, Ganong and Guyton and Hall in front of you to study and felt completely overwhelmed? St Vincent’s Melbourne Pre-SET Society is here to help.

The Generic Surgical Sciences Exam (GSSE) is mandatory for entrance into most surgical specialty training programs. Surgical residents often find the anatomy component the most enjoyable and easiest to study. While physiology and pathology are left aside because they are unfamiliar and challenging.

St Vincent's have designed an intensive two day education program to kick start those difficult subjects. The lectures are based on subjects that have the greatest weight in the exam, providing the highest yield for your study.

Will gratefully be assisted by senior staff at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne, who will run expert lectures on important topics.

  • Are you an intern not sure what field of medicine you want to pursue?
  • Are you a BPT or critical care streamed resident with your own exams coming up?
  • Are you a medical student struggling with physiology and pathology?

YOU ARE ALL WELCOME! We found that in 2018-19 JMOs from all disciplines found our education course to be beneficial to their study, as most career paths whether medical or surgical, require a good foundation in the basic sciences.

Date

Course One targets the June GSSE and is running on 14 and 15 March 2020. It will cover physiology, pathology, microbiology, pharmacology and statistics.

Time

8:30am-5:30pm each day of the course

Location

St Vincent's Hospital Clinical School
