New Zealand Branch

The professional, educational and political interests of clinical radiologists and radiation oncologists in New Zealand are overseen by the New Zealand Branch Committee (NZBC) and the New Zealand Radiation Oncology Executive (NZROE).

These two committees represent the College when advocating and collaborating with government, regulatory organisations, District Health Boards and other stakeholders. Both the NZBC and NZROE consist of members from around the country who work both in the public and private sectors.
