Surgical Education

Welcome to the CARE Training and Education. The Centre for Advanced Reproductive Endosurgery (CARE),               in association with the Sydney Clinical Skills & Simulation Centre (SCSSC), North Shore Private and the Mater Hospitals - affiliated teaching units of the University of Sydney - warmly invites you to participate in our highly acclaimed courses in Minimal Access Pelvic Surgery.

The ultimate goal of our courses is to help you gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to:

  • Provide patients with safe, efficient and effective minimal access pelvic surgery
  • Avoid and manage complications in gynaecological surgery

Based on feed back from hundreds of participants who have attended the program over the last 17 years, we continue to offer 3 Master Classes in 2017 & 2018. However, due to the tremendous feedback of previous course participants and limited spaces, we recommend that any surgeon who wishes to register for the 2017 / 2018 courses to do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE  to avoid having to wait until 2017.

For 2017 - 2018 Master Classes, please check the appropriate course dates and send enquiries by email as most (if not all) spaces may have been filled.
