Trainees' Weekend

Running over two-and-a-half days, the annual Trainees’ Weekend is an important national forum that brings together primarily Trainees but also those interested in a General Surgical career, from across Australia for an intensive educational weekend, focusing on key areas of the General Surgery Curriculum where day-to-day surgical exposure may be limited - bridging the knowledge and skills gap.

Another key program-focus is the Fellowship Examination, where delegates potentially have access to Fellow/s from the RACS Court of Examiners, providing first-hand advice and invaluable knowledge to those preparing for the exam.

Faculty is made up of senior Consultants and Fellows who are experts in their chosen specialties, providing valuable insight and experience, and aiming to guide delegates through their training into their ongoing careers.
