What is the Conjoint Committee?

The Conjoint Committee for the Recognition of Training in CT Coronary Angiography (CTCA) is composed of three representatives from each of the following organisations:

  1. The Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists – formerly the Australian and New Zealand Association of Physicians in Nuclear Medicine (ANZAPNM)
  2. The Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ)
  3. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR)

Its aim is to promote a collaborative and consistent model of CTCA training and service delivery in Australia and New Zealand.

The Committee operates under legally binding regulations which ensure that decisions are made on a consensus basis across the three professional bodies.

The Committee’s role is to:

  • Formulate and review guidelines for training in CT Coronary Angiography
  • Formulate and review guidelines for training courses in CT Coronary Angiography
  • Provide certification of satisfactory completion of training in CT Coronary Angiography (or the withdrawal of such certification)
  • Maintain and publish a web-based register of recognised CTCA specialists; and
  • Establish quality assurance benchmarks in relation to the performance of CT Coronary Angiography
