Trainees who meet the prerequisites for training may apply for an accredited training position within an accredited training network. Successful applicants will receive an employment letter and contract notifying them of their appointment to an accredited training position.
New trainees are responsible for completing and submitting to the College their RANZCR Training Program Application Form and Trainee Compact (including all required supporting documentation).
Trainees are required to complete personal details, including details of qualifications, medical registration and postgraduate experience. The appointment and proposed course of training must be confirmed by completion of the relevant section on the form. This section must be signed by the Head of Department (HoD) or the Director of Training (DoT).
Completed forms and supporting documentation must be received at the College within two weeks of a trainee’s accredited training start date.
Late or incomplete applications will result in the trainee’s official accredited training start date to be set at the date of receipt of the application or the date the application is regarded as complete.
The checklist provides a summary of all the documents which must be submitted to support the details listed on the application form.
The Trainee Compact outlines trainees’ obligations to the College while completing the training program, and to their training site/employer. Trainees are required to initial each page of the document and sign and date the last page.
The Trainee Compact is returned to the College with the Clinical Radiology Training Program Application Form. This document is kept in the Trainee’s file at the College. Trainees should retain a copy of the signed document for the duration of their training.
Providing a training environment that is supportive of trainee needs and meets the training curriculum and regulatory requirements is a shared responsibility of the College, training departments, training networks, clinical supervisors and trainees.
All College trainees in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore are trained within an accredited hospital department or private practice.
