Perioperative Medicine has been defined as the care of patients from the time they contemplate surgery through the operative period to full recovery at home.

The course is aimed at medical practitioners working in this emerging field. It has been designed to facilitate the delivery of collaborative and optimal perioperative care to patients presenting with complex, chronic and acute medical conditions requiring surgical intervention.

Note: It is not the purpose of this course to act as a pathway into specialty training in Australia. Completion of this course leads to a either Masters OR Graduate Certificate qualification but not to Specialist recognition.
