Weekly Surgical Lecture Series

Teaching currently on hold due to coronavirus pandemic


To educate Surgical Residents on material relating to various surgical specialities. Topics will cover common conditions, as well as, recognising and managing uncommon but serious conditions.

Lectures will be an opportunity for senior residents to display their teaching skills in their surgical speciality of interest, and an opportunity to work with the Surgical Consultant supervising the teaching session.

The teaching sessions are intended to be interactive and focussed on preparing residents to become competent registrars. The exact format is up to the consultant and resident teaching the session, it may be entirely discussion based or case based. The resident should prepare a handful of slides and a brief presentation (20-30 minutes) around which to base the discussion. The discussion will address one or more of anatomy, pathophysiology, operative surgery, clinical assessment and decision-making.

Allocated residents are expected to contact the consultant chairing their session 1-2 weeks in advance. A reminder will also come from the Surgical Resident Committee Education Officer in the weeks before the tutorial.
