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.
Network training is a term used to describe a group of training sites that support comprehensive training by supporting a trainee as they rotate through a variety of environments across a number of hospitals, private practices, regional practices and specialty sites. Network training prepares you with broad skills, multi system and site knowledge, and exposure to a variety of training environments.
Trainees are expected to rotate to a number of training sites throughout their training. Your training department and network will work with you to plan for your rotations.
Networks are supported by their own governance committees and by the Training Network Directors in Radiation Oncology and Network Training Directors in Clinical Radiology.
Clinical Radiology and Radiation Oncology Training Sites and Networks are assessed against a set of standards that have been identified by the College, which set out to ensure that a minimum standard of facilities and network governance is available to support the delivery of training and the needs of trainees.
There are three types of accreditation for clinical radiology training sites:
Accreditation Standards for Education, Training and Supervision of Clinical Radiology Trainees
Accreditation Standards for Linked Sites (Clinical Radiology Training)
Clinical Radiology Full Accreditation Application Form
Clinical Radiology Linked Accreditation Application Form
Clinical Radiology Increase of Accredited Training Position
For radiation oncology accreditation individual sites collaborate as part of a Network and are assessed against network standards. This ensures a consistency of training delivery.
