Vascular Surgery program

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 collaborates with the Australian and New Zealand Society for Vascular Surgery, as an agent of RACS, to administer the Surgical Education and Training (SET) program.

The Board of Vascular Surgery has oversight for the conduct of the SET training program in Vascular Surgery, reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.

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

Vascular Surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures and surgical reconstruction. This page contains information about the training program for Vascular Surgery.
