Why should you choose Radiology ?

Training Co-ordinator Dr. A. Mizzi

Postgraduate training in Radiology in Malta consists of a 5 year training program, leading to a certificate of specialist training. The radiology training curriculum is based on the European Training Charter for Clinical Radiology: (http://www.esur.org/fileadmin/Files/Charter_and_Currcula.pdf).

In the first three years of training, the trainees attend a formal lecture and tutorial program. The first part of the teaching program covers the physics and anatomy syllabus, in preparation for the FRCR part I exam. The second part of the lecture program consists of several modules that cover the different body systems, in preparation for the FRCR part II exam. The trainees are expected to sit the FRCR (Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists – United Kingdom) examination, or an equivalent examination.

During the first three years of the program, the trainees undergo different rotations in the Medical Imaging Department at Mater Dei Hospital and obtain experience in a wide range of imaging modalities that are applied to the different body systems.

Trainees participate in the weekly clinico-radiological meetings, departmental audit and perform on/call duties in the Medical Imaging Department at Mater Dei Hospital, Malta, as part of their training. They are also encouraged to participate in research and to publish papers and case reports.

Every trainee is expected to spend at least one year of post-FRCR subspecialisation in a Radiology centre abroad. This ‘fellowship year’ is an essential part of the 5 year program and can be arranged anytime between years 4 and 5 of training.
