RACS provides substantial support for prevocational doctors to develop relevant competencies.
For over 80 years the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) has been recognised as the authoritative body for standards and training in surgical practice in Australia and New Zealand. Accreditation is given by the Australian Medical Council, on behalf of the Medical Board of Australia, and the Medical Council of New Zealand to conduct training and education of surgeons in each of the nine surgical specialties. The Surgical Education and Training (SET) program promotes high quality, efficient surgical education and training through early selection into specialty training - surgical Trainees are selected directly into the specialty in which they will undertake specialist surgical education and training.
Admission to Fellowship
Fellowship admission to college is not immediate or automatic. To support your application and ensure all requirements are met, we undertake a thorough sign-off process.
