The parent bodies of the Conjoint Committee for Certification in Cardiac MRI, RANZCR and the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ) have approved the Position Statement on Initial Certification and Maintenance of Recognition in Cardiac MRI. The position statement focuses on optimal health outcomes and best practice while reflecting on the complexities of two different medical specialties and the need for robust yet practical training and ongoing competency requirements. The Conjoint Committee membership consists of equal representation from RANZCR and CSANZ who are recognised experts in the field. The Secretariat and administration for this Committee is impartially supported by RANZCR.
