The new Australian surgical training program starts in 2008

The Council of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), with the support of the nine specialty boards and related specialist societies, has approved the new Surgical Education and Training (SET) program, to commence in 2008.1 The RACS has responded to drivers of change in medical education, the bottleneck of basic surgical trainees and a wish to move to a competency-based training program.
