Research at RACS


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.


Survey research has become an essential component of consulting trainees and Fellows to understand issues that affect them and for the evaluation of programs.

If you are interested in conducting survey research with trainees and/or Fellows, please download and review the survey policy document prior to making contact with the Evaluation and Survey Coordinator.

JDoc and SET trainee experience survey

(posted 14th March 2018)

Are you a junior doctor or trainee working in an Australian hospital? Perhaps you work with or educate junior doctors or trainees?

If so, we want to hear from you!

We are conducting a research project considering changes in the lives of junior doctors and trainees in Australia.

We are asking interested junior doctors and trainees as well as those who work with or educate junior doctors or trainees to participate in a one-on-one interview which will run for approximately 45-60 minutes. We will ask you about your experience as a junior doctor or trainee, which aspects you find most rewarding and most challenging, and how you balance your workload with your life outside of work. This research is part of my doctorate at Macquarie University. As a token of gratitude for your time, you will be given a $25 Coles/Myer gift card.

For further details or to express interest in participating in this project, please email: Lara McGirr (PhD Candidate, Dept. of Anthropology, Macquarie University).
