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.
