Over the years, the College has financially supported a number of initiatives in clinical radiology and radiation oncology in developing countries.
This support fills a critical need. Clinical radiology and radiation oncology services are not readily available in lower-middle income countries, due to the cost of infrastructure and the limited availability of trained medical professionals.
Our initiatives help improve patient care and raise the standard of clinical radiology and radiation oncology overseas.
In 2013, the College Board approved an annual allocation of AU$30,000 to support international development work in clinical radiology and radiation oncology.
College members and groups can submit a request to this fund for international development initiatives. Proposals are due by the end of March each year to obtain funding for the following financial year (July to June). For further details and instructions on applying, see the Annual International Development Fund Guidelines in related documents below.
