Graduates often take up consultant/clinical academic posts or become specialist registrars, and pursue careers in science, elite sport, physical activity promotion, and biomedical industries.
With the breadth of research activity and internationally leading expertise available within the Division of Surgery and Interventional Science we aim to enhance our student experience – through offering the finest environment for personal and academic development. We have excellent facilities ranging from nanotechnology laboratories to stem cell facilities, GLP laboratories, custom joint design and manufacture, gait analysis and computer modelling facilities within the division.
The division offers a unique environment of interdisciplinary and cross- disciplinary research between surgeons, basic scientists, materials scientists, engineers, mathematical modellers, physiotherapists, nurse practitioners and other allied health professionals working within the surgical environment which is actively encouraged.
