Training

  • Fellowships in Paediatric Radiology

    Each year the Medical Imaging Department offers six funded General Paediatric Radiology Fellowship positions. These positions are of 12 months duration with start dates in February and August. Six month positions may also be considered. Positions are suitable for radiologists who have completed their training and want a career in paediatric radiology; or for radiologists who want to upskill in paediatrics prior to a career in general radiology. The Medical Imaging Department is accredited for Diagnostic Radiology training by the RANZCR. In addition to the funded Fellowships, supernumerary Fellowships may also be offered to suitable applicants who have funding from their own institutions or outside bodies.

    Fellows are incorporated into the Fellowship training program, which involves rostered and supervised clinical work in all imaging modalities, and presenting at multidisciplinary meetings. The teaching program includes lectures, journal clubs and interesting case presentations for 1 hour twice weekly. Fellows are additionally rostered for 1 session of non–clinical time to study or participate in research. Fellows are encouraged to participate in research studies and to submit abstracts for presentation at major paediatric radiology conferences. As part of the clinical program, Fellows are required to participate in the oncall roster.  

    Previous experience in Paediatric Radiology is not essential but appointment of Fellows is competitive and prior experience and interest in the specialty is an advantage.

    International applicants must be able to satisfy AHPRA registration requirements and may be required to provide evidence of English language competence (IELTS or similar).

    Positions are generally advertised and filled one year in advance.

    More information about the program and application process can be obtained from Dr. Padma Rao - Director of Medical Imaging by email: medical.imaging@rch.org.au
