Overseas qualified Radiologists MUST MEET specific RANZCR College criteria.
The 5 years of General Radiology training is a "hurdle" for those with qualifications from India, Pakistan, Brazil, China (excluding Hong Kong), Eastern Europe et al.
Australian trained Radiologists undertake 5 years of training in RANZCR accredited teaching practices with formal examinations and periodic reviews.

In addition, "The structure and governance of the training program:
a. is underpinned by a comprehensive curriculum/learning outcome which articulate the knowledge, skills and attributes expected of graduates;
