Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia


The Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the National Board) has established the Medical Radiation Practice Accreditation Committee (the Accreditation Committee) to exercise a number of accreditation functions under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).

The role of the Accreditation Committee is to develop and recommend accreditation standards to the Board for approval. It then assesses whether programs of study and education providers are meeting the accreditation standards and decides whether or not to accredit the provider and program. The National Board considers the Accreditation Committee’s decision and their report and decides whether or not to approve an accredited program as a qualification for registration as a medical radiation practitioner.

Accreditation standards help to ensure that education providers give students the knowledge, skills and professional attributes to competently practise in the profession

Accreditation standards

The National Board has approved the Medical radiation practice accreditation standards under section 47 of the National Law.

As required by section 46 of the National Law, the Accreditation Committee undertook wide ranging stakeholder consultation about the content of the Accreditation Standards before they were recommended to the National Board for approval.
