The Cutting Edge: Obstetrics and Gynaecological Skills is a hands-on skills training workshop utilising simulation models.
This workshop is designed to assist GP Proceduralists and GP Obstetricians in attaining an improved level of confidence in gynaecological and obstetric procedures. Limited places are also available for KEMH Registrars in Gynaecological Surgery.
