The Foundation Skills for Surgical Educators - aimed at Fellows, IMGs and Senior SET Trainees - is an introductory course to expand knowledge and skills in surgical teaching and education.

The aim of the course is to establish a basic standard expected of RACS surgical educators and will further educate in teaching and learning concepts. Participants will look at how these concepts can be applied into their own teaching context and will have the opportunity to reflect on their own personal strengths and weaknesses as an educator.

With the release of the RACS Action Plan: Building Respect, Improving Patient Safety, the Foundation Skills for Surgical Educators course is now MANDATORY for Surgeons who are involved in the training and assessment of RACS SET Trainees.

The course will cover such topics as:

  • Understanding myself as a teacher
  • Planning a learning process
  • Understanding and supporting learning
  • Recognising teaching and learning opportunities
  • Feedback
  • Assessment


Attendance at this course is free.
