RANZCR Examinations Update: Dates Confirmed

The Covid-19 pandemic and associated public health restrictions have impacted on all aspects of the Clinical Radiology and Radiation Oncology Training Programs, particularly the examinations.

As previously indicated in our May update to all trainees, the College is focused on holding its delayed 2020 examinations before the end of the year. In line with Guidelines for decision making related to Covid-19 Crisis, we have considered alternative methods of examination delivery, while ensuring our capacity to deliver and maintaining the integrity of the examination process. 

Following extensive consultation with education and training committees, training departments and trainees, the RANZCR Board has approved modified examination plans, for 2020 only as outlined in a communique sent to trainees in both faculties.
