Providing a quality mark for surgical education

A surgeon using a microscopeFrom an evening's Continuing Professional Development event to a year-long Master's programme, the RCS accredits a wide range of surgical education activities.

We want to ensure these activities provide a high quality learning experience for those who participate. We do this through the process of accreditation, verifying the quality of the educational event and checking participants' comments and level of satisfaction.

We offer education providers a wide range of benefits, including*:

  • Review by leading surgeons and recommendations on quality enhancement
  • The award of CPD points
  • Use of the RCS logo
  • Listing on the RCS website and / or Accreditation Portal and in the RCS publication The Bulletin
  • Use of the RCS online evaluation platform, including questionnaire development, analysis and reporting
  • Advertising discount

*benefits vary according to accredited activity

Our Accreditation Portal has further information on how to apply for accreditation.
