Training Post Accreditation

Training Post Accreditation

The Board of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, RACS is responsible for the inspection and accreditation of all SET OHNS training posts within Australia and New Zealand, ensuring that hospitals and training posts provide learning environments which facilitate the training of safe and competent surgeons.  The accreditation criteria are based around eight core educational, clinical and governance standards essential to providing quality training in a range of clinical contexts. The standards have been produced to provide an environment in which trainees can acquire the requisite competencies identified as necessary by the Board of OHNS.
