Clinical Surgery from University of Sydney aims to produce surgical leaders with attitudes and skills that allow them to meet the challenges of surgical specialist practice. Furthermore, completion of the doctorate allows students to develop research skills which equip them to plan an academic career. 


Clinical Surgery from University of Sydney is designed to be undertaken in conjunction with the surgical training program of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons to augment research, leadership and communication skills. Candidates who have already completed surgical training in Australia or a recognised surgical training program elsewhere will benefit from undertaking the Doctor of Clinical Surgery for its further non-clinical study opportunities and research skills development.


The Doctor of Clinical Surgery combines surgical studies and training with research and prepares students to become a surgeon. It may also prepare students for specialist recognition. Students are advised to gain approval for recognition of the Doctor of Clinical Surgery course in their particular jurisdiction and to ensure that the Doctorate meets the standards for training in their jurisdiction and through their nominated specialist recognition authority.
