The purpose of the SET Program in Vascular Surgery is to achieve proficiency and competency in the nine Surgical Competencies outlined by RACS. The SET Program in Vascular Surgery is designed to provide trainees with clinical and operative experience to enable them to manage patients with conditions that relate to the specialty, including becoming familiar with the techniques related to the discipline. At the conclusion of the SET Program trainees will have a detailed knowledge of the surgery conditions recognised as belonging to the specialty of Vascular surgery and a less detailed knowledge of the surgery of those conditions recognised as belonging to super-specialist areas within Vascular surgery.
Information on becoming a Surgeon is available here on the College of Surgeons website. Applications to Surgical Education and Training in Vascular Surgery must be submitted via the ANZSVS online application system at www.vascularsurgeryapplications.com.au
