Due to the current COVID-19 situation and the second wave now hitting Melbourne, it has become increasingly difficult to plan for the November MAFAC course in Melbourne. In fact, it has become unrealistic. The MAFAC faculty has made the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s Course.

Consideration was given to changing the format to an online course to allow MAFAC to continue in the adverse circumstances. However, we realised this could not provide the unique quality that the MAFAC Course has become renowned for. What distinguishes MAFAC is the exceptional ‘hands on’ dissection experience provided which is not possible with current distancing requirements. Acknowledging this, it is better to wait for normal circumstances to return and then benefit from a proper MAFAC Course.

We apologise for the inconvenience and encourage you to express your interest for next year, as there will be a backlog.

With best wishes,
Bryan Mendelson, Head of MAFAC Faculty.
