Training Post Accreditation


Find a surgeon

The Find a Surgeon directory is a listing of active Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons who meet the requirements of the College's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program and have opted to be on the list. This list excludes retired or inactive Fellows.


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

The College has published the Accreditation of Hospitals and Posts for Surgical Education and Training booklet (PDF 346 KB), which details the process and criteria for accreditation. The current version of the booklet was released in June 2016.
