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 Vascular Surgical Training has oversight for the
conduct of the College Training Program in Vascular Surgery,
reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.
The College collaborates with the The Australian and
New Zealand Society for Vascular Surgery, as an agent of the
College, to administer the Training Program.
The Surgical Education and Training (SET) Program in Vascular
Surgery 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.
