The program has been developed to address the specialised needs of teaching and learning in surgical environments. Surgical education is unique within the broader discipline of medical education characterised by the clinical settings in which surgery is taught. Technology has had a significant impact and will play an increasingly important role in teaching and learning the complex sets of skills required for safe surgical practice.

The program is designed to support surgeons in developing expertise in teaching and to promote educational scholarship. There are core and elective subjects with face to face and online delivery modes. This serves the purpose of exposing participants to 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 role of regulatory bodies, balancing clinical service with training, teaching and learning in the workplace, ethical imperatives for simulation-based education, and safer working conditions including safe hours.
