Professor George Ramsey Stewart is currently Professor of Surgical Anatomy at the University of Sydney. His main teaching interest is the teaching of topographical anatomy to medical students, who aspire to a surgical career, and to postgraduate surgical trainees during their training. His research interests are in evaluating the various methods of imparting such anatomical knowledge. He was for many years a surgeon on the active surgical staff of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, and he remains an Emeritus Consultant Surgeon to that institution.
He also holds a Clinical Associate Professorship in the Discipline of Surgery at the University of Sydney. He feels strongly that a detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the peritoneum (which entails an appreciation of the embryology of the peritoneal cavity) is a prerequisite for all those who aspire to operate on, or who do operate on, the abdominal cavity.
