For surgery techniques, training and review of videos will need to be completed before engaging with the students in surgical practicals. This is to ensure the tutor has a clear understanding of the techniques and procedures being taught to students and to ensure that all tutors convey the same information to students. Practical classes typically run from 3 to 5 hours and will be primarily conducted in the school’s Clinical Studies Centre.

Classes take place in teaching weeks of both semesters. Typically this is from around the end of February to the end of May for semester one and from the end of July to the end of October for semester two.
