Dr. Hal Rice obtained his medical degree at University of Queensland in 1992, followed by his residency at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. Hal then went on to complete specialist training in diagnostic and interventional radiology at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital before undertaking advanced specialist fellowship in diagnostic at interventional Neuro-radiology at the world famous Mt.
