Surgery 2019: Back to the Suture!

15-16 August 2019
TE PAPA, Wellington

Surgery 2019 returns to Te Papa, with an enlivening and varied program designed to be pertinent to all surgeons regardless of their surgical specialty, age and whether their practice is public or private. We will hear from senior health officials on the future of surgery and surgical funding and expectations around consent. An interactive session on ethical dilemmas, and speakers from various medical disciplines will prompt an informative and stimulating mix of discussions.

We encourage you to take this opportunity to meet with RACS Fellows and others from the health sector. We look forward to seeing you in August.
