MBBS MIPH (Clin Ed) MSc (Surg Ed) FRACS
The ASE remains one of few highly engaging courses with senior practising surgeon mentorship, excellent faculty to student ratio, covering a comprehensive general surgery curriculum. The course is valuable to the junior trainee as an introduction to tissue handling, instruments and procedures, and even more so to an advanced trainee preparing to present for the Fellowship examination.
The location is equally as impressive as the ASE course in tropical Cairns using state of the art James Cook University facilities. Candidates will gain both procedurally relevant and academic growth, and establish networks and relationships with experienced faculty that has lasting impact to their professional growth.
