Training in interventional radiology in Australia and New Zealand
Training starts within the RANZCR Clinical Radiology Training Program, where registrars develop a range of basic procedural and clinical competencies. The training program lays the foundations required for interventional practice, which can be built upon through Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities or by undertaking a Fellowship in IR upon receiving the FRANZCR.
Fellowship positions (typically one year in duration) equip radiologists to perform complex procedures requiring specialised interventional skills. Once Fellowship in completed, some IRs choose to sit the European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) examination.
