– Online lectures covering core content

– Audio casts covering deep dives into key topics

– MCQs with answers to be updated every 6 months.

– Information on face to face sessions as well as anatomy tutorials run by our trained staff with models

Please see below for the current timetable – all sessions are open access and all occur in Westmead Hospital WECC building
