AMC Accreditation 2017


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 is being comprehensively assessed by the Australian Medical Council and the Medical Council of New Zealand for accreditation to deliver surgical training. The AMC team is assessing RACS SET and continuing professional development programs.

Have your say

The AMC is interested in hearing from Supervisors, Clinical Assessors, Trainees and IMGs about your experiences of SET. Please participate to provide your feedback.


You will have received an email on 1st March inviting your participation in the AMC survey.
