Surgery School

Improve your physical, emotional, nutritional and general health before surgery and decrease complications with our successful education program.

Get the right information to prepare for surgery.

Surgery School is an essential component of the  Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Prehabilitation and the Fit4Surgery programs.

At Surgery School you will hear directly from key members of the Prehabilitation team including doctors, nurses, dietitians, exercise professionals and psychologists to help you prepare for your upcoming surgery. Attending Surgery School has been shown to decrease post-operative complications.

Surgery School is offered in a monthly in person group education session at the hospital or in your own home in the NEW Virtual Surgery School, which runs twice a month.
