RACS Fellows actively demonstrate their enduring commitment to lifelong learning and Continuing Professional Development (CPD), through participation and compliance rates of 100 per cent year on year. The CPD Program is strongly valued and recognised as one of the core services offered to Fellows. RACS is well positioned to continue to lead the development of standards, programs and services to support surgeons in maintaining their CPD.

RACS supports the Medical Board of Australia in the review of the registration standard for CPD and is committed to working to continue to develop robust standards for surgeons in Australia and welcome improvements that have an emphasis on patient safety.
