The Royal Melbourne Hospital neuroradiologist Associate Professor Frank Gaillard has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists.
The international recognition is awarded by the UK-based College to those who have promoted the interests of clinical radiology or clinical oncology and made notable contributions to either. It is the most prestigious award given to a non-Fellow of the College, with just 71 Honorary Fellows in total.
A/Prof Gaillard trained as a radiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital after graduating from the University of Melbourne. He completed two additional years of neuroradiology fellowship training, a form of diagnostic radiology that focuses on the head, brain, spine and neck to diagnose stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurological conditions.
In addition to his role as a consultant neuroradiologist at the RMH, A/Prof Gaillard is the founder and CEO of Radiopaedia.org, an online collaborative radiology reference resource for radiologists and other health professionals. The Royal College recognised this work as a “cornerstone of medical education throughout much of the world”, in particular recognising the contribution in developing countries.
