Vascular Surgery 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 Australian and New Zealand Society
for Vascular Surgery, as an agent of RACS, to administer the
Surgical Education and Training (SET) program.
The Board of Vascular Surgery has oversight for the conduct of
the SET training program in Vascular Surgery, reporting to the
Board of Surgical Education and Training.
The SET program in Vascular Surgery 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
Vascular Surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of
the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical
therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures and surgical
reconstruction. This page contains information about the training
