For Surgeons

Our programs support improved health outcomes for patients and their communities and advance medical knowledge in the speciality of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Many surgeons provide tremendous in-kind support to the Foundation through volunteerism and we welcome the involvement and support of specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Only Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) are approved to undertake work with or on behalf of the Foundation.
