The next generation of groundbreakers

Training is central to the work to the O’Brien Foundation. We have been training surgeons and research fellows from Australia and overseas for over 45 years.  Our aim is to equip them with skills to perform lifesaving surgery and inspiring them to seek new research areas both here and when they return to home countries.

It is our responsibility to maintain the highest standards of training so that it can provide the ‘ground-breakers’ of tomorrow with a platform of knowledge on which to build for the future. More recently, the O’Brien Foundation has launched two scholarships that help the PhD students we train to remain with us into the future in order to nurture and boost our future scientific expertise.
