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 the tremendous positive feed back from hundreds of participants who have attended the program over the last 17 years, we are pleased to  continue offering 3 distinct Master Classes each year.

Due to the tremendous interest in the courses and limited spaces, we recommend that any surgeon who wishes to register for the remaining 2017  and upcoming 2018 courses to do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE  to avoid the risk and disappointment of missing out.

For 2017 - 2018 Master Classes, please check the appropriate course dates and send enquiries by email.
