The College is the principal body for the training and education of surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. Accreditation is given by the Australian Medical Council to the College and standards for education and training are established by the College.

The Board of Surgical Training in Urology has oversight for the conduct of the College Training Program in Urological Surgery, reporting to the Education Policy Board and Council of the College.

The College collaborates with the The Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, as an agent of the College, to administer the Training Program.

The Specialist Surgical Training Program in Urology is designed to provide trainees with clinical and operative experience in order to learn special methods of investigation and become competent in techniques related to the discipline. At the conclusion of the Training Program it is expected that trainees will be able to perform as independent practitioners, meeting the requirements of all identified College competencies.
