PGY3 Surgical Training
Applications have closed
Alfred Health offers extensive training opportunities in General Surgery and Specialty Surgery. We provide 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
Each specialty college has a slightly different process for selecting and allocating SET trainees. All information relating to the SET selection process can be found on the RACS website.
All SET applicants, no matter which allocation process the specialty college uses, must apply to Alfred Health for a PGY3+ Surgery position if you wish to be considered for employment at Alfred Health.
Our selection process will have concluded prior to all of the SET positions being offered. If your SET application is unsuccessful, and you have not applied, we will not be able to consider you for a position.
