Medical Training Opportunities

Gynaecology

Registrars/senior registrars are exposed to a substantial number of major, intermediate and minor gynaecological procedures, with training in the essentials of gynaecological surgery (4-5 operating sessions per week).

Experience can be gained in a range of advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures, pelvic reconstructive work, minimal access urological procedures and vaginal surgery.

Registrars have access to a one-stop menstrual disturbances clinic where considerable experience in outpatient hysteroscopy can also be gained. Colposcopy accreditation is available.

The Women’s Assessment Service deals with a significant number of gynaecological emergencies with at least 8-10 ectopic pregnancies per month. The early pregnancy assessment unit offers expectant, medical and surgical treatment for women with non-viable pregnancies.

The department has a major interest in infertility and the senior registrar attends Repromed-Adelaide Fertility where advanced reproductive medicine and surgical techniques are performed to help infertile couples conceive.
