The Professional Development Program 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.
Professional Development Guide
To assist you in selecting the right Professional Development courses for you, we have created an interactive Guide to Professional Development. This guide allows you to explore available learning opportunities and helps you identify courses that will meet your professional development needs. To begin, access the Guide to Professional Development and log in using your RACS credentials.
