Thank You and Season's Greetings from CTEC

A message from Professor Jeff Hamdorf, Director of CTEC and the Head of Surgical Education at The University of Western Australia:

As 2022 draws to a close, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank every one of CTEC's Faculty Members, Convenors and supporters for their invaluable contributions over the past 12 months and previous years.

Before the CTEC team finishes for the year, we wanted to share below some of CTEC's highlights for 2022.  We could not have achieved these results without you.

On behalf of myself, Clinical Associate Professor Hairul Ahmad and the CTEC team, I'd like to wish you a happy and relaxing festive season.
