About the course


Basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pathology and microbiology are essential for developing a strong foundation in surgical training and for the understanding of its clinically applied aspects.

This intensive two-day course will provide the attendee with an overview of basic physiological principles, consolidate the candidate's core and applied surgical knowledge in anatomy and relevant pathology, and provide a focused revision of pertinent topics as tested in the exam.

On Day 1, the emphasis will be on basic and surgically applied anatomy (except head, neck and spinal cord), general pathology and burns. Day 2 will cover head and neck anatomy, autonomic nervous system, spinal cord and lesions, embryology, cancer pathology, microbiology, trauma, principles of surgery and applied surgical sciences.
