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 Medical Students in the Golden Scalpel Games Student Edition and HETI Surgical Skills Training Network Trainees in the Trainee Competition on Saturday, 17 August 2019, at Level 5, Kolling Building, Royal North Shore Hospital.
