Training Post Accreditation

You are here:

Trainees progress through an integrated program that provides them with increasing professional responsibility under appropriate supervision. The College approves training posts that enable Trainees to acquire the competencies needed to become consultant surgeons, able to practise independently or as part of a multidisciplinary team.

The College has published the Accreditation of Hospitals and Posts for Surgical Education and Training booklet (PDF 990 KB), which details the process and criteria for accreditation. The current version of the booklet was released in November 2008.
