The Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) Surgical, Education, Research and Training (SERT) Institute was established in 2017 as an academic department within the RNSH Division of Surgery and Anaesthesia.
The Institute’s vision is to build a bridge between academic learning and the professional practice of surgery. To achieve these goals, the SERT Institute works closely with the University of Sydney Northern Clinical School. Our vision is consistent with the NSW State Health Plan – Towards 2021.
Royal North Shore Hospital is a large tertiary referral hospital located on the lower north shore of Sydney, where it serves the Northern Sydney Local Health District. It provides statewide services for a number of important surgical specialities, which include burns and spinal surgery. It is the busiest trauma centre and in the metropolitan area, and its speciality surgical services make it one of the most capable in the state.
