Specialist college warns of exam disruption over coronavirus concern

The RANZCR says its exams may be disrupted due to COVID-19 and any candidate with flu symptoms will be turned away

The college of radiologists will demand all candidates taking its exams involving face-to-face assessments sign declarations that they have not travelled to any COVID-19-affected country with community transmission in the previous month.


And it says anyone exhibiting flu-like symptoms on the day of the tests will be turned away and required to apply for a deferment.

The move by Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) will affect examiners as well as registrars and those IMGs being assessed by the college to work as specialist radiologists.
