Post Fellowship Education and Training in Spinal Surgery

Overview


The objective of the Post Fellowship Education and Training (PFET) Program in Spinal Surgery is to provide competent independent specialist neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons with advanced procedural experience, knowledge and surgical skill relevant to the safe and effective treatment of complex spinal conditions. The PFET Program in Spinal Surgery is a joint program governed by the Neurosurgical Society of Australasia and the Australian Orthopaedic Association.

Updated Regulations have been approved and are available for download below.  A 12-month grandfathering period has been established to allow programs to align with the new Regulations. All accredited AOA-NSA Accredited PFET programs will need to comply to the new Regulations by 1 May 2021. Any fellows currently participating in a PFET position will be assessed under the old Regulations.
