Registrar Training

This involves a five year programme during which the registrars rotate through, and are exposed to, all facets of radiological imaging under consultant supervision. During the five year rotation, registrars rotate through Steve Biko Academic Hospital (formerly Pretoria Academic Hospital), Kalafong Hospital and 1 Military Hospital.

Academic discussions and teaching tutorials are held every morning as well as most afternoons.

It is expected that within 18 months a registrar must pass his/her primary examinations (MMed Rad Primary, comprising Physiology, Physics, or Anatomy and FC Rad Part I if so desired, comprising Physics and Anatomy), and that within five years the registrar must pass his/her final examinations (FC Rad Part 2. The MMed Rad qualification requires the submission of a research project/dissertation before the degree shall be conferred upon the candidate.)

A logbook must be kept by each registrar recording the type and number of procedures performed during his/her training.

Note: MMed Rad = Master of Medicine, Diagnostic Radiology, University of Pretoria

FC Rad = Fellow of the College of Radiologists of South Africa
