The RCR Clinical Radiology and Interventional Radiology Curriculae are delivered at all 3 localities within the school.  This is by way of formalised small group teaching sessions, use of simulation and clinical experience within the various Departments of Clinical Radiology throughout the region.  The latest edition of the RCR Curriculum can be found by following the links for Clinical Radiology and Interventional Radiology.

Funding is also available through the School Curriculum Delivery Budget, to enable trainees to attend additional courses throughout training, to complement the local teaching programme.  Appropriateness for attendance at external courses should be discussed with your Educational Supervisor at the start of each year, and should be guided by the Personal Development Plan for the year.  In order to promote research within the School there are also limited funds available for presenting work at national/international conferences and approval for these should be sought through the Head of School.  It is expected that any abstracts submitted for presentation at external conferences will have been presented at an appropriate setting more locally (eg. Annual School of Radiology Conference), as a pre-requisite for obtaining funding.

The School has also subscribed to STATdx to enable trainees to benefit from access to this on-line resource during the course of their clinical attachments.  If trainees want to obtain a log-in, or have any issues with STATdx access, please contact the following people:

  • East Trainees - The Radiology Department at Hull Royal Infirmary.
  • South Trainees - Fiona Swift, PAs to Dr Batty & Dr Rutherford, Royal Hallamshire Hospital.
  • West Trainees - Carol Bailey or Jane Kaye, Radiology Academy Manager, Leeds General Infirmary.
