Graduate Diploma in Surgical Education

      What will I study?

      Overview

      The Graduate Diploma in Surgical Education combines the specific challenges of surgical education with a foundation in broader education principles.

      Over two years of study, you’ll learn about educational theory and curriculum design, and learn how to apply them in the context of surgical education.

      Course structure

      To gain the Graduate Diploma in Surgical Education, you must complete four core subjects and choose another four elective subjects (12.5 credit points each). You are expected to enrol in four subjects per semester, but it’s possible to undertake just one, and complete the certificate over a longer period of time.

      Most participants in this course are busy professionals undertaking studies in conjunction with clinical commitments, so flexibility is key. Each subject is delivered through full-day workshop (8 hours), plus a series of self-paced learning activities (e.g. webinars, moderated discussions, and tutorials), accessible online, and spread over 13-week semesters.

      Workload

      You should expect to commit approximately 8 - 10 hours per week to each subject. This includes formal learning activities, reading and private study.
