2021 Simulation Workshop 1

On behalf of General Surgeons Australia and the Victorian/Tasmanian Training Committee, it is with pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 2021 Simulation Workshops.

There will be three simulation workshops on offer for Trainees and SIMGs to attend which is being coordinated by Mr Julian Choi. Each workshop is convened by experts in the field.

As these workshops are being offered free of charge, we anticipate that they will be extremely popular. Places will be offered on a first-come first served basis.

Note: Due to the workshops being offered free of charge, any Trainee or SIMG who registers but does not attend will be prohibited from attending any future simulation workshops.

*Please be aware that this workshop may be cancelled, depending on Victorian Government Covid-restrictions at the time of the event. We strongly recommend that the impact of potential cancellations is taken into account for any travel or accommodations bookings, as well as any quarantine requirements that may be in place in your region.
