Post fellowship education in spine surgery (PFET)

The Spine Society of Australia is committed to the advancement of spinal surgery. In the view of the Society this means that in order to perform complex modern spine surgery that special post fellowship training for either Orthopaedic surgeons or Neurosurgeons is needed. 

The Society recognizes that the disciplines of both Orthopaedic surgery and Neurosurgery bring unique skills to the process of training a spine surgeon.
