Hospital Accreditation

It is a requirement that all hospital training posts are accredited prior to placing any trainee on the SET programme to ensure the quality and consistency of training and education across New Zealand.

For more information on the process for accrediting a hospital in New Zealand contact the Education and Training Manager at

Where possible requests need to be sent prior to 31 January to ensure posts can take part in the accreditation process prior to selection that same year.

Trainees may be placed in any one of our accredited training centres within New Zealand.  The following New Zealand hospitals are currently accredited for SET Orthopaedic Surgery Training:
