How do we develop an agreed curriculum that speaks to what perioperative medicine should be? Once that's in place, how should it be overseen? What sort of official endorsements would it need?

Running in parallel to this are the MOOCs - Massive Online Open Courses - that are being developed.

Developing a broad knowledge of the process is distinct from being a perioperative specialist, how do we develop that even further - without developing a schism? These complicated topics are discussed alongside more detail regarding the future of teaching this speciality.

Presented by Monty Mythen and Mike Grocott with their guests; Joel Symmons, Staff Consultant Anaesthetist in the Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine at the Alfred Hospital, Perioperative Medicine Short Course Convenor, and a Senior Lecturer in Anaesthesia at Monash University, and Paul Myles, Head of Alfred Health's and Monash University's Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine.
