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 are introducing a programme of non-technical skills teaching sessions from late 2019. Sessions on a variety of topics will run every 2 months and will provide an opportunity for the senior trainees to get together and take some time out from their busy clinical job to concentrate on other aspects of life in the NHS. It will hopefully alleviate the need for attending generic Deanery courses and expensive external courses. These are principally being co-ordinated by Dr Ian Craven and Dr Rachel Hyland for West trainees. However, East & South trainees are welcome to attend - but please be aware that some sessions will be restricted in numbers due to venue and/or teaching practicalities. Details will be published below, as and when the sessions are confirmed.
Access to STATdx
The School has also subscribed to STATdx to enable doctors in training to benefit from access to this on-line resource during the course of their clinical attachments. Incoming doctors to the School will be given the option to opt-in or out of this subscription as part of your registration process and you will be contacted in advance of commencing training. Queries about this process can be sent to the School at email@example.com. You can also change your decision at any time during your training and again should contact the School.
Once an account is set up and log-in credentials sent to you, any queries regarding access or technical issues with your account should be directed to the STATdx provider. Contact details can be found through the link above. The School has no account management access.

- Monday 4th May: Error/Discrepancy/Duty of candour
- Monday 6th July: Research in radiology
- Monday 7th September: Resilience and conflict
- Monday 2nd November: NHS structure and finance
As indicated earlier in this page, numbers are restricted to 30 places for each day due to teaching practicalities and venue availability. We will publish the programme for each session as and when it is finalised.
This is the first of a planned programme of annual study days for all three schemes to get to together to focus on a particular aspect of the Radiology curriculum. (Further details of the wider study day programme will follow over the coming months).
Date: 17th May 2023. (9am registration with 9.30am start. Approx 16.30 finish). Full programme has now been finalised and is available at the bottom of this page. (Doctors who registered before 27th April will also have been emailed a copy of the programme)
Venue: Park Plaza Hotel, central Leeds - https://www.radissonhotels.com/en-us/hotels/park-plaza-leeds/meeting-events
This study day aims to provide a general overview of paediatric radiology and is primarily aimed at ST1-ST3 trainees across the Yorkshire & Humber training cohort, as well as ST4 and ST5 trainees who have an interest in paediatric radiology. The day will cover a spectrum of topics, including how to approach paediatric ultrasound and x-ray reporting, paediatric neuroradiology, oncology and interventional radiology, in addition to a fly-through of acute paediatric pathologies. The topics covered will be useful for those involved in paediatric on call and will also serve as useful revision for trainees who are preparing for their FRCR 2A and 2B exams.
Please note that the capacity for this event is limited to 70 attendees.
Registration - Registration for this event has now closed. If you wish to attend, please email the School of Radiology team to check if places are available.
Feedback and certificates - The organisers will be asking all attendees to submit feedback, details of which will be circulated nearer the event date.
Part of the annual School programme of IR Simulation study days for ST1 -ST3 doctors.
This event aims to give ST1 Radiology trainees in Yorkshire an insight into the world of IR. This is a great opportunity for those early in radiology training to learn about the different techniques and equipment used, as well as gain hands-on experience using high quality materials and simulators.
Full synopsis of day & the agenda can be found in the programme available at the foot of this page.
