CPD Overview

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program

To comply with the requirements of the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ), RANZCR provides a CPD Program for members. This program has been developed under the leadership of the Clinical Radiology Continuing Professional Development Committee and the Radiation Oncology Post Fellowship Education Committee.

The program provides a wide range of activities that meet the aims and objects of the MBA and MCNZ offering seven categories of activities. These include opportunity for self-reflection and peer review. The program has a three year cycle (triennium) which allows members great flexibility to fit in with their professional and personal lives.

The RANZCR CPD Program is a self-directed and self-reporting program. Fellows record and report on their CPD activities annually and are responsible for selecting activities appropriate for their continuing professional development and for claiming CPD points.

CPD Required for Registration

To be registered as a specialist in Australia or New Zealand, the MBA and MCNZ require Fellows to undertake CPD and each agency carries out audits to ensure compliance. To assist in ensuring all our membership are compliant, participation in the RANZCR CPD program is mandatory. For more information see:


The College also audits a random selection (7%) of CPD participants. The purpose of this is to ensure that members are selecting appropriate CPD activities and recording them correctly.

If you are selected for audit, we will contact you and give you four weeks to submit evidence of your CPD activities. For more information see:

We will review your submission to confirm that you have claimed all activities correctly and submitted the correct evidence. This takes between two and four weeks.
