Fellows are responsible for maintaining their skills, knowledge and competence which includes developments in their area of practice, as well as advances in clinical and medical science.
Education activities facilitate the maintenance or improvement of the knowledge and skills required to work competently as a surgeon, with the aim of improving patient care and outcomes. Participation in education activities should incorporate technical and non-technical areas of knowledge across the ten surgical competencies.
RACS recognises and encourages Fellows to participate in education activities across a broad range of modalities including face-to-face learning events, blended learning models, formal and informal learning opportunities.
Microlearning activities are bite sized, interactive learning opportunities, which are easily accessible via mobile phone, tablet or computer. They capture key messages and focus on the immediate information with links to gain a deeper understanding if required. These activities count towards Category 3 CPD points.
We value your feedback, please take a moment complete this brief microlearning evaluation.
Approved surgical audits
The College is committed to excellence in clinical care and all surgeons are expected to be involved in regular surgical audit, peer review and quality assurance activities. All surgeons who conduct operative procedures in hospitals, day surgery, units or private rooms are required to participate in a surgical audit each year, and to submit the audit for peer review.
