Trainees progress through an integrated program that provides them with increasing professional responsibility under appropriate supervision. RACS approves training posts that enable Trainees to acquire the needed competencies to become consultant surgeons who are able to practise independently or as part of a multidisciplinary team.

We have published the Accreditation of Hospitals and Posts for Surgical Education and Training booklet (PDF 345.22KB) which details the process and criteria for accreditation. The current version of the booklet was released in June 2016.
