The Surgical Education Research Prize is awarded for the best research paper presented during the Surgical Education programme. The Annual Scientific Congress is the largest multi-disciplinary surgical meeting held in Australia and New Zealand and provides Fellows with a valuable opportunity to present their experience, wisdom and opinions to their colleagues, in a challenging and truly international forum.
