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 Surgical Training in Urology has oversight for the
conduct of the RACS SET training program in Urological Surgery,
reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.
RACS collaborates with the The Urological
Society of Australia and New Zealand, as an agent of RACS, to
administer the Training Program.
The Surgical Education and Training Program in Urology 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.
