The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is the principal body for the training and education of surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. Accreditation is given by the Australian Medical Council to RACS and standards for education and training are established by RACS.
The RACS Board of Cardiothoracic Surgery has oversight for the conduct of the RACS Surgical Education and Training Program (SET) in Cardiothoracic Surgery, reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.
The SET Program in Cardiothoracic Surgery is designed to provide Trainees with clinical and operative experience in order to learn special methods of investigation and become competent in techniques related to the discipline. At the conclusion of the SET Program it is expected that Trainees will be able to perform as independent practitioners, meeting the requirements of all identified RACS competencies.
