Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is the principal body for the training and education of surgeons in Australia and New Zealand.  Accreditation is given by the Australian Medical Council, on behalf of the Medical Board of Australia, and the Medical Council of New Zealand to conduct training and education of surgeons in all specialties in Australia and New Zealand. 

RACS Australian Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and RACS New Zealand Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery have oversight of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Surgical Education and Training (SET) program in Australia and New Zealand respectively, both reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.

The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery SET training program 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 training it is expected that trainees will be able to perform as independent practitioners, meeting the requirements of all identified RACS competencies.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery covers a broad scope of practice from procedures to improve one's aesthetic appearance to reconstructive surgery including trauma burns and congenital defects such as cleft palates.

The SET program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is administered in Australia by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and in New Zealand by the New Zealand Association of Plastic Surgeons (NZAPS).  

For all information related to the SET training program in Australia and New Zealand, please contact ASPS and NZAPS respectively.
