Master of Medicine (Radiology) is a part time program of study offered to trainees in accredited Radiology training positions.
The course is designed to run in parallel with training for the fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (FRANZCR).
The course includes a two year lecture and tutorial program which leads to a revision program at the commencement of the third year.
The course aims to supplement vocational training and is strategically aligned with the RANZCR curriculum in order to promote excellence in radiology training.
On completion of the course, students acquire a defined body of knowledge and procedural skills which will be used to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and to make appropriate clinical decisions. The course endeavours to develop students' analytical and problem-solving skills necessary to function as effective diagnostic radiologists. Candidates are expected to adapt their cognitive and observation skills to enable accurate interpretation of the various medical imaging modalities employed in modern radiology. The course aims to ensure that the qualified radiologist will continue to keep up to date with new developments in imaging, and make learning, teaching and research a part of the professional career. Candidates will be able to collaborate effectively with other health professionals for the provision of optimal patient care, education and research.
