Health, Hospitals and Education

For Health Professionals

The College has an ongoing commitment to the educational development and support of Fellows, Trainees, IMGS and other health professionals. It is a leader in education, research and audit, event services and also maintains numerous awards, lectures and prizes.

For Education and Training Providers

The College supports education and training providers in many ways; RACS can accredit your course or activity for continuing professional development. The College also operates or can access a number of specialty training venues across the region, providing access to cutting-edge techniques and technologies. The College works with Specialty Societies to assess and accredit proposed Post Fellowship Education and Training Programs.

For Government

The College advocates on behalf of Fellows, providing a strong and clear voice for surgeons. In doing so, the College ensures that the government is well acquainted with the needs and views of surgeons. This section of the site includes information about our work in the community, statistics of the surgical workforce and policies and position papers.

For Hospitals

Hospitals have an integral part in the training of surgeons. Trainees complete clinical placements at accredited hospitals, working through a range of competencies to progress their training. Many surgeons take part in audits in order to learn from their own and others' experiences of certain types of cases. Research is also important in the development of new procedures and techniques.
