Alfred Health offer extensive training opportunities in General Surgery and Specialty Surgery. We provide PGY3 and PGY3+ rotations which are all accredited by the Royal Australian College of Surgeons (RACS).

We will assist in tailoring a training and rotational program that meets the specific RACS requirements for entry to the SET program you intend to apply to.   All surgical trainees have access to a full range of mandatory and recommended surgery rotations as well as Emergency and HDU. We provide a supportive environment where training and learning is encouraged, and consultant surgeons are available to teach and advise.

 
Our range of surgery rotations are also ideal for prospective Radiology and Critical Care trainees where a surgical background can be beneficial.

 
PROSPECTIVE SET TRAINEES:
