RACS response to ACCSM claim
ASPS supports RACS wishes to correct some of the claims made by the “Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery & Medicine” (ACCSM) that the AMC found a “deficit” in the training of cosmetic surgery in RACS’ plastic and reconstructive surgery program. This is incorrect. RACS’ most recent AMC accreditation report (2021) made no mention of a deficit.
RACS is the only college accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) to provide training leading to registration in the medical specialty of surgery. ACCSM is an unaccredited group mostly made of practitioners who are not specialist surgeons. Read more.
