Registration forms

Registration forms are available for the following categories.

For information on application fees and registration fees, see the National Board fee schedule or for further information, see the National Board’s FAQ.


Graduate applications

For those about to complete an approved program of study, to start your application for registration please apply online.

Final year students or recent graduates may apply online for provisional or general registration. Further information on the types of registration available is provided below.

Online applications are available to students completing an Australian approved program of study and who:

  • have never been registered as a health practitioner in Australia or overseas
  • have never practised as a health practitioner in Australia or overseas
  • are applying for registration as a medical radiation practitioner
  • have a valid Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card, and
  • have less than five previous names.

Provisional registration

Provisional registration is for Australian and New Zealand graduates of approved or equivalent medical radiation practice programs of study applying for provisional registration where:

  • the applicant has never practiced the profession and
  • the National Board indicates that graduates of a specific approved or equivalent program of study are required to undertake a period of supervised practice in order to meet the requirements of general registration.

You can apply online or you can download a provisional application form.

Provisional registration is granted for a period of 12 months commencing from the date of approval. This means applicants for provisional registration are required to pay a registration fee that covers the full 12 month period of registration that is granted.

Should a practitioner become eligible for general registration any time within the 12 month registration period, the practitioner can apply for general registration. There is no application fee to change registration type from provisional registration to general registration.

The registration fee payable to change to general registration is calculated based on the remaining portion of the general registration fee less the unused portion of the provisional registration fee. This ensures that the practitioner is not financially disadvantaged when changing registration types.

General registration (for recent graduates)

General registration is for those recent graduates who have completed an approved program of study where:

  • the applicant has never practiced the profession and
  • the National Board indicates that graduates of a specific approved program of study are NOT required to undertake a period of supervised practice.

You can apply online or you can download an application form.

University of South Australia Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Nuclear Medicine) may apply for general registration, noting that the Board has imposed a condition requiring graduates of this program of study to complete 6 months of supervised practice.

Renewal of registration

Online application for renewal of registration opens six to eight weeks before your registration expires. AHPRA will send you a reminder when your registration is due. Look for this as confirmation that online renewal is open.

If you do not renew your general or non-practising registration by 30 November each year, or within the following one month late period, your registration will lapse in accordance with the National Law and your name will be removed from the national register of practitioners.

Review of conditions or undertakings

Limited registration

Limited registration for postgraduate training is for those applicants who do not qualify for general registration but wish to undertake postgraduate training. Practitioners with limited registration for postgraduate training must not practise in any capacity outside of their clinical training program. Additionally, practitioners undertaking postgraduate training that requires a clinical component must practise supervised under arrangements approved by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board).

Registration under this category will only be granted for a specific purpose and for a limited time.
