The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) is a not-for-profit association of members who deliver skills, knowledge, insight, time and commitments to promote the science and practice of the medical specialties of clinical radiology (diagnostic and interventional) and radiation oncology in Australia and New Zealand.
The College is led by clinicians who are democratically elected by the membership. The ultimate oversight and responsibility for the College is vested in the RANZCR Board of Directors.
The work of the College is scrutinised and externally accredited against industry standard by the Australian Medical Council and the Medical Council of New Zealand.
The setting up of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Radiology early in 1935 led to the formation of the College of Radiologists in 1949. Since then, the College has had three further name changes until finally becoming The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists in 1998.
The mission of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists is to drive the appropriate, proper and safe use of radiological and radiation oncological medical services for optimum health outcomes by leading, training and sustaining our professionals.
RANZCR Strategy to 2017 provides a clear direction for our work over the next four years.
The College’s Annual Report is published in September each year prior to the Annual General Meeting, which is held at the Annual Scientific Meeting in October.
