The Supreme Court of Western Australia has handed down judgment in Elobadi v Royal Australasian College of Surgeons [2013] WASC 29.

Dr Elobadi, who qualified in Iraq, sought admission to the RACS but the College said his qualification was not comparable. 

The court held that he was correctly classified as ‘not comparable’ and therefore his claim for a declaration and his claim for breach of contract failed.  

Even if there had been some unfairness in the process, a further evaluation applying the guidelines of the policy was held to inevitably reach the same conclusion.
