Professional Development Program overview

The Professional Development Program for Fellows aims to support surgeons in aspects of their professional life, encouraging professional growth and workplace performance. Life long learning through professional development can improve our capabilities and help us to realise our full potential as surgeons as well as individuals.

The workshops and courses are Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited and incorporate one or more of the surgical competencies detailed in the Standards and Protocols section. The activities below are grouped by competency.

You can also search for activities by date and view Active learning with your peers (PDF 436 KB), the professional development activities booklet.PD booklet icon 2015

All activities are CPD accredited and reflect the College guidelines for Surgical Competence and Performance.

Global sponsorship of the Professional Development programming is proudly provided by Avant Mutual Group, Bongiorno National Network and Applied Medical.
