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.


To deliver a successful meeting, an event manager is assigned to work with your committee and communicates your needs to the team in the Conference and Events Department and all event suppliers. See a list of current surgical conferences and events including those managed by the department.
