A common challenge to both New Zealand and Australia is providing medical care for people in remote communities. The College is actively working on issues like workforce recruitment, retention and professional development to areas outside the major cities. RACS’s Rural Surgery Section Committee (RSSC) is dedicated to providing solutions to surgical challenges in remote and regional areas. Chair of the RSSC is Dr Bridget Clancy, who discusses its strategy and aims for the next twelve months.
