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 Board of Paediatric Surgery has oversight for the conduct of the RACS Surgical Education and Training Program in Paediatric Surgery, reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.
RACS collaborates with the Australian and New Zealand Association of Paediatric Surgeons to administer the Surgical Education and Training program.
The Surgical Education and Training (SET) Program in Paediatric 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 training program it is expected that trainees will be able to perform as independent practitioners, meeting the requirements of all identified RACS competencies.
