REMINDER FOR NUCLEAR MEDICINE SPECIALISTS: PET TRAINING and CREDENTIALLING
Nuclear medicine specialists who intend to do training in positron emission tomography (PET) must ensure that they submit an application for prospective approval of their PET training to the Joint Specialist Advisory Committee (JSAC) of the RACP and the RANZCR.
All PET training must be prospectively approved by the JSAC in order for this training to be accredited. Following completion of accredited PET training, the nuclear medicine specialist must then apply for credentialling for PET in order that Medicare payments can be made to patients for PET services.
To enquire about prospective approval of PET training and obtain the relevant forms, please contact the RACP at NuclearMedicine[at]racp.edu.au or phone 02 8247 6279.
Following completion of PET training, specialists must also ensure they obtain credentialling for PET in order that Medicare payments can be made for their PET services. For PET credentialling queries, please see the following:
