To the Editor: The editorial by Waxman1 on the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons’ new Surgical Education and Training (SET) program contains some factual errors that have led to anxiety among potential applicants. We wish to give the formal position of the College and to correct any misunderstandings. The SET program2 is evolutionary, builds on the strengths of the previously available program, and is based on an educationally sound framework and group of principles.
