Urology program

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is the principal body for the training and education of surgeons in Australia and New Zealand.  Accreditation is given by the Australian Medical Council, on behalf of the Medical Board of Australia, and the Medical Council of New Zealand to conduct training and education of surgeons in all specialties in Australia and New Zealand. 

RACS collaborates with The Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, as an agent of RACS, to administer the Surgical Education and Training (SET) program.

The Board of Urology (otherwise known as the Training, Accreditation and Education Committee - TA&E Committee) has oversight for the conduct of the SET training program in Urology, reporting to the Board of Surgical Education and Training.

The SET program in Urology is designed to provide trainees with clinical and operative experience in order to learn special methods of investigation and become competent in techniques related to the discipline. At the conclusion of the SET program it is expected that trainees will be able to perform as independent practitioners, meeting the requirements of all identified RACS competencies.

The goal of the Board of Urology is to select, train and educate people with the ability to acquire the necessary surgical skills and competencies to become excellent urologists. We look for potential, recognizing that past behaviour predicts future performance. We promote ethical values and principles, and support and encourage continued learning throughout a professional career.
