a guide to passing the fellowship examination in general surgery
An indispensable study guide to help surgical trainees prepare and perform for their fellowship exam.
Examination Surgery offers invaluable insight into the format and content of the Fellowship Examination in General Surgery.
This study guide addresses the most frequently encountered topics from the last 10 years of examinations. It helps surgical trainees organise their studies and optimise their performance in what is reputedly one of the most rigorous postgraduate exams.
The general surgery fellowship tests clinical wisdom, judgement, insight and safe practice, and Examination Surgery’s preparation material accurately reflects what you will encounter in the exam.
Arranged to mirror the exam’s individual components, Examination Surgery is divided into the following sections:
- The written papers
- Clinical viva voces
- Surgical anatomy viva voce
- Operative surgery viva voce
- Pathophysiology and critical care and clinical reasoning viva voce
This Elsevier study guide is aimed at candidates preparing for the Fellowship Examination in General Surgery of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
