The Radiation Oncology Training Program is changing - click here to find out more

The RANZCR radiation oncology training program is a five-year program in two phases:

  • Phase 1 (1-36 months)
  • Phase 2 (36-60 months)

Training is undertaken through accredited network raining sites. Trainees rotate to a number of training sites throughout their training, see Training Sites and Networks.

This section of the website is for current trainees. For information on how to apply for a training position, see Join our professions.

Application Form and Trainee Compact

Within two weeks of starting in a training position, you must complete and submit an application form and trainee compact.

Trainee Progression

Radiation oncology training is structured in two major phases. The exact length of each phase depends on progress and achievement of milestones.

You progress through the program by achieving regular satisfactory assessments from supervisors and Directors of Training. For details, see the related documents below.


Each year, trainees pay a RANZCR Membership Fee, and a Training Fee to cover the costs of running the training program. Trainees also pay Examination Fees when sitting exams.

Part-time Training and Leave

The College recognises that trainees (in certain circumstances) need to vary their training time arrangements. These are all possible with the approval of your Director of Training and the College. Requests are made via your profile on the Trainee Information Management System.
