14. Canberra Hospital needs to establish a network including private and rural sites to enable trainees to rotate during their training. The establishment of linked accreditation with Breast Screen ACT is also recommended to ensure trainees receive sufficient exposure to Breast Imaging.

15. Trainees’ rosters need to allow all trainees to meet the Experiential Training Requirements. In particular insufficient access to the areas of Breast, Nuclear Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynaecology as well as Paediatrics are of concern.
