RACS will review an application once received to ensure:
- The information contained within the application demonstrates eligibility to have specialist surgical qualifications, training and clinical experience assessed by RACS
- The documentation is complete. The College will contact applicants directly by email if more information is required
- Applicants have 40 days from the date the email is sent to submit the documents requested by the Administrative Officer. If additional information is not sent within 40 days, the application will be deemed inactive and the specialist assessment fee less 10% (administrative fee) will be refunded
- Applications will become active upon receipt of all requisite documentation
The RACS specialist assessment process normally takes up to 3 months (from date of activation) to complete.
