Event description
“Surgery was the most difficult thing I could imagine. And so I became a surgeon.” ― Dr. Abraham Verghese MD, MACP

About this Event

Surgery is considered to be one of medicine’s most archetypal and sought-after specialties, and one that requires dedication, passion and sacrifice.

MedView’s “A Day in the Life of a Surgeon” will cut through the fat and give you a gross-anatomical view of what it’s like to be a surgeon, and how to excise the relevant information to become one.

  • Understand the complex pathway on training to be a doctor, and ultimately a surgeon (including UCAT, Medical School and specialty training)
  • Learn basic Surgical and Suturing Techniques
  • Understand the human body with an Anatomy Masterclass
  • Hear from an inspiring Surgeon, and junior doctors from Queensland’s best hospitals

Designed for high-school students interested in medicine, “A Day in the Life of a Surgeon” is the first event of its kind to be offered in Australia, and provides students and parents the opportunity to hear first-hand the insider’s perspective.
