Member benefits


The International Travelling Fellowship

Every year, the RCR awards one clinical radiology team and one clinical oncology team with the RCR International Fellowship.

The winning teams, which consist of a consultant and a trainee, are awarded funds to carry out philanthropic international activity. Each team visits their country of choice twice, to ensure their project delivers the maximum benefit of developing clinical radiology or clinical oncology in that area. Past recipients of the award have had fantastic feedback from their host organisations and have experienced significant benefits themselves in terms of teaching experience, learning experience and making new connections with international peers.

History of the award

The International Travelling Fellowship was created in 2017 by combining the Cochrane Shanks Jalil Travelling Fellowship and the Sir Howard Middlemiss Travelling Fellowship awards. Previous awards have also included the RCR Prafulla Kumar Ganguli Professorship. Past awardees visited Ghana, Sri Lanka and India.


Up to £11,000. Each visit per year will receive up to £5,500. 


It is open to Fellows of the RCR who hold a consultant post in the UK, and to trainees in a UK approved training scheme. All applicants must be in good standing with the College.
