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.

Notification to prospective applicants for the Clinical Radiology and the Radiation Oncology training programmes – COVID 19
Thank you for your interest in the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologist’s (the College’s) training programs.
The New Zealand Government’s response to the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve daily. Despite this, the College is making every effort to ensure minimum disruption to our members and prospective trainees.
Recruitment for the clinical radiology and radiation oncology training program is proceeding as scheduled. All applications must be received by noon on 6 May 2020.
Despite our intention to proceed with the standard recruitment process, including interviews, alternative plans are being made to cover a range of eventualities, including ongoing social distancing, travel restrictions and strain to New Zealand’s healthcare system. Any change to plans will be communicated to applicants.
