Specialty Societies

You are here:

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is an umbrella organisation representing the interests of all Fellows in whatever specialty they practice. Additionally, the specialties and sub-specialties are represented by their own societies or associations.

Fellowships of the RACS are awarded in 9 surgical divisions:

  1. Cardiothoracic Surgery
  2. General Surgery
  3. Neurosurgery
  4. Orthopaedic Surgery
  5. Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery
  6. Paediatric Surgery
  7. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  8. Urology
  9. Vascular Surgery.

Each of the 9 surgical divisions has a board for training in that specialty. The boards can appoint regional subcommittees to advise on training facilities in the regions, and to be available to advise Trainees in the specialty. There are also Fellows in Ophthalmology, and Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

The following societies and associations include Fellows who participate in the activities and educational programs of the College.
