Surgical Specialties and Societies overview

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is an umbrella organisation representing the interests of all Fellows according to their specialty. Additionally, the specialties and sub-specialties are represented by their own societies or associations.

Fellowships of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) are awarded in nine surgical divisions.

Surgical Specialties

Each of the 9 surgical divisions has a board for training in that specialty. The boards can appoint regional subcommittees to advise on training facilities in the regions, and to be available to advise Trainees in the specialty. There are also Fellows in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Ophthalmology.
