Our people

We employ close to 30 radiologists and over 250 staff members, including 120 radiographers,  qualified nursing staff and experienced administrators. Our people are our most valuable asset and the quality of our staff is reflected in the excellent service provided to clinicians and patients alike.

Initial medical training

A radiologist has a medical degree (MBChB), completes an internship and then community service before specialising. Some will complete additional diploma qualifications such as DipPEC (emergency medicine), DA (anaesthetics) or DH (paediatrics).

Subspecialisation

A number of our radiologists have completed subspecialist fellowship programmes at recognised training institutions locally and abroad. This usually involves a one- or two-year period of working and training in a dedicated unit, focused almost exclusively on their chosen subspecialist field under a team of expert consultants. The fields covered by our subspecialist fellows include: neuroradiology, head and neck, chest, cardiothoracic, body, musculoskeletal and paediatrics.

An alternative route to subspecialisation is the European Society of Radiology pathway, which requires a number of courses, logbooks and assessments followed by a diploma exam in Europe, leading to the radiologist earning the title description of subspecialist or diplomate in their chosen field.

Specialisation

Four years at a recognised teaching unit as a registrar or clinical assistant is followed by completing the radiology board exam at the SA College of Medicine which allows the radiologist to be called a Fellow of the College of Radiology or FCRad (SA). A research paper submitted and published confers the Master of Medicine Degree (MMED). An exit exam then completes the training.

Fellowship

Additional qualifications can be acquired through international radiology exams which then allows the radiologist to become a Fellow of a specific country’s College of Radiology (e.g. Australia’s FRANZCR, Canada’s FRCPC and the UK’s FRCR).

Patients will seldom meet their radiologist but their images are studied by highly skilled radiology specialists who have studied for over a decade and have many years of experience.
