Master of Surgical Education

      What will I study?


      Participants can access a range of delivery modes, increasing program flexibility essential for busy professionals undertaking studies in conjunction with clinical commitments. The program content reflects critical issues in the broader education community together with specific challenges for surgical education.

      The program is delivered part-time, with students expected to enrol in 2 subjects each semester. However, it is possible to undertake just one subject per semester. All subjects (with the exception of the Minor Thesis) will be taught using multiple delivery modes. This will include one full day (8 hours) workshop plus self-paced learning activities (e.g. webinars, moderated interactive discussions, and tutorials) spread over 13-week semesters. The self-paced learning activities will be accessed through an online learning management system. Students should expect to commit approximately 8 - 10 hours per week to each subject. This includes formal learning activities, reading and private study.
