Sydney University Surgical Society is excited to host the annual seminar “Introduction to Surgery: SET and Beyond“. This night aims to educate students about surgery as a career and pathways for gaining entry to Surgical Education and Training (SET) programs.
This year we are fortunate to have Dr Sarah Aitken and Dr Pratik Rastogi provide their insights on the pathway to surgery.
Dr Aitken is a Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at Concord Repatriation General Hospital, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, and an academic surgeon. Dr Aiken’s talk will provide insight into life as a surgeon, her career pathway, and surgical research.
Dr Rastogi, a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Registrar at RNSH, will discuss the RACS selection and training process. He will also talk about how research and postgraduate courses can fit into the surgical training and selection process.
Whether you’re interested in a career in surgery or simply want to learn more, this lecture is a fantastic opportunity, particularly for Stage 1 and 2 medical students, to gain insight into the surgical training process and a career in surgery.

Date: Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
Time: 6:00 – 7:30pm
Location: New Law School Lecture Theatre 026, University of Sydney
