What qualifications do you need to work in Surgery in Australia and New Zealand?

The specialist qualification in Australia and New Zealand is Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). You can compare your training programme to the RACS training programme to see if it is comparable in terms of content, duration, governance and assessment. If so, it may be worth you applying for Specialist Assessment in Australia or Vocational registration in New Zealand. International qualifications that are often deemed comparable include:

  • UK/Ireland – FRCS combined with the CCT (or CCST or JCHMT as appropriate)
  • Canada – Fellowship with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Canada
  • USA – Some Board-Certified Surgeons – depending on training program

Benefit from our in-house Regulatory and Migration team expertise.

All our Doctors have access to expert advice on the registration process with the College, AHPRA and Medicare, plus migration advice from our in-house registered migration agents.

The opportunities that Wavelength give you, I would say have been a crucial part of my formation as a Surgeon. They provide opportunities that suit every stage of someone's professional career. What I have right now is everything I always wanted when I was training.

Wavelength have been most helpful in arranging my Surgical locums over the last 2 years or so. I find them extremely polite, pleasant, understanding and efficient. They are extremely committed to their work and in obtaining the best outcomes for everyone.
