POSTPONED TILL FURTHER NOTICE
Covid19 update 08/02/2021
Unfortunately there are no plans over the coming months to hold RDR in Melbourne. Given the unpredictable nature of the virus and the consequential restrictions imposed we are unable to hold RDR. We have and continue to explore online options.
We remain committed to providing high quality educational experiences in radiology education.
Covid19 update 14/03/2020
It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone RDR2020.
It is apparent that to run RDR2020 at this time poses too much of a risk to everyone's health and that of the broader community.
We have considered the current advice from the Federal and Victorian Governments and that of the AHPPC and have decided to postpone.
We appreciate your patience whilst we have tried our best to navigate where RDR2020 sits in this new environment.
Please contact our office for more information regarding your registration
