    Dr Ben McDonald

    Graduate Diploma of Surgical Anatomy

    JCU’s Graduate Diploma of Surgical Anatomy is outstanding. You get international experts, retired surgeons with more than 50 years’ experience and anatomists. Getting those perspectives on anatomy, approaches and clinical relevance is extremely useful. I’ve also found everyone to be very approachable.
