Why participate?

Many Clinicians caring for surgical patients are challenged by the growing complexity of these patients, particularly their perioperative management.

Pre-admission clinics are responding, and perioperative medicine is becoming an emerging field and this course will address deficiencies in this area.

This course will be conducted by Monash University (Central Clinical School - Alfred Hospital), in conjunction with the Alfred Hospital's Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine.
