The Surgical Education and Training (SET) Program for each of the surgical specialties, includes the management of trauma and injury.
Fellowship Training in Australia and New Zealand
In accordance with the objectives of the ANZAST Constitution, we aim to establish a formal Post-Fellowship Education & Training Program (PFET) in Trauma. Initial steps have been taken with approval from General Surgeons Australia (GSA) to manage a PFET Program in Trauma Surgery.
Post-Fellowship positions in Australia and New Zealand
There are a number of post-fellowship positions across Australia and New Zealand, that allow excellent exposure to the management of injured patients including those with multi-system trauma.
ANZAST considers surgical skills training a vital resource for surgeons who treat injured patients.
ANZAST Skills Workshops, and the Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC) course are the premier skills courses currently available within Australia and New Zealand.
Master of Traumatology
The first of it’s kind in Australia, the Master of Traumatology Program at the University of Newcastle combines formalisation of clinical experience with a postgraduate coursework qualification.
