Radiologists WITHOUT 5 years General Radiology training

DISCLAIMER: the following advice is based on our opinion and experience. It is NOT RANZCR approved advice. We have provided a link to the RANZCR pages for IMG's.

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. 

Appendix A of the RANZCR IMG Assessment Policy (Australia) RANZCR March 2022  states the "Duration of the program must be a minimum of fives years FTE in Clinical/Diagnostic Radiology". 

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;

b. leads to a nationally recognised qualification; 

c. is accredited by an external body."
