Tasmanian Anatomy and Surgical Interest Network (TASIN)
The Tasmanian Anatomy and Surgery Interest Network (TASIN) is an initiative of TUMSS that caters to students who are interested in the anatomical underpinnings of disease, radiological analysis of the human body, and the development of surgical skills.
TASIN operates under the umbrella of TUMSS and is recognised by the Australasian Students’ Surgical Association (ASSA) .
TASIN is a medical student initiative that aims to inspire, educate and empower medical students at the University of Tasmania who are interested in pursuing a surgical career, as well as enabling students to acquire essential skills applicable to all areas of medicine.
We have five key goals at TASIN:
1. To promote surgery as a possible career choice for medical students
2. To foster medical student interest in surgery by providing educational and research opportunities
3. To provide information about the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) Surgical Education and Training (SET) program, as well as surgical careers in general
4. To establish a forum where professional relationships between students and surgeons can develop
5. To foster the professional and personal development of students in line with the nine RACS competencies
