Golden Scalpel Games®

The Golden Scalpel Games® have been run successfully over the past seven years as the major education and training event for the HETI Surgical Skills Network.

The Games provides an opportunity for students and trainees to share training skills, knowledge, explore new innovations in technology and the use of simulation environments. The event also provides an important opportunity for networking with network directors of training, education support officers and key leaders of surgical training at the state level from HETI and the Clinical Surgical Training Council.

Golden Scalpel Games® 2019 will be showcasing the surgical skills of NSW and ACT University Surgical Societies and HETI Surgical Skills Network Trainees on 17 August 2019, at the Kolling Building, Royal North Shore Hospital. Expressions of Interest are open for the Trainee and Student Editions of the Games. The closing date for registering an EOI is 14 June, 2019.
