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.


RACS Visitor Grant Program

The College is committed to excellence in surgical education and practice and recognises that Fellows within sub-specialties and other groups wish to enhance their annual scientific meetings by inviting scientific visitors of note, from Australia, New Zealand and internationally. RACS will support these initiatives through the RACS Visitor Grant Program.

Groups are invited to apply for funding towards the cost of travel, accommodation and registration for their 2020 visitor(s). Application are open to any recognised society of assocation of surgeons.
