Eligibility Requirements

Have appropriate basic medical qualifications:

  • Be a graduate of a medical school recognised by the Medical Board of Australia and the Board of the RANZCR (or have successfully completed both Part I and Part II AMC examinations for overseas medical graduates in Australia)
  • Be fully registered as a medical practitioner by the registering authority recognised by the Board of the RANZCR, in the state or country in which the RANZCR training program is conducted
  • Have completed at least two full years in an approved hospital as an intern/resident

The Clinical Radiology Training Program is designed as a five-year training program and structured in three major phases. This sequencing is to ensure trainees develop foundation knowledge and skills during Phase 1 and then have the opportunity to further develop their abilities and breadth of practice during Phase 2 of the training program. In Phase 3, trainees consolidate their skills and focus on areas of interest.

Phase 1 extends from the trainee’s commencement in training through to 12-24 months into the program.

Phase 2 continues through to 48-60 months.

Phase 3 is 12 months duration.

Trainees will continue in each phase until they have achieved the expected standard of competence and completed the training requirements of that phase. The length of each phase is determined by each trainee’s progress.
