ANZ Chapter of the American College of Surgeons


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.


The Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) was established to promote the objectives of the ACS:

  • Elevate standards of surgery
  • Establish standards of competency and character
  • Educate public and profession on training in surgery.

Membership of the ANZ Chapter is available to Fellows of the American College who reside in Australia or New Zealand. Trainees of RACS intending on gaining ACS Fellowship in the future are also encouraged to join.

The Chapter allows a strong link between the colleges in promoting the care of surgical patients. The Chapter in conjunction with the ACS funds an annual travelling fellowship for a young American surgeon to visit the Annual Scientific Congress (ASC), the Hugh Johnston ANZ ACS Travelling Scholarship for Younger Fellows, the John Buckingham Travelling Fellowship for trainees, as well as allowing the Chapter President to attend the Annual Clinical Congress of the ACS.
