Research for trainees

Our Academic Committee works hard to explore methods by which they can encourage and foster research opportunities in clinical radiology for trainees.

Research Certificate Scheme

The Research Certificate Scheme has been introduced to promote radiology research amongst non–academic radiologists. It encourages engagement in research activities, with the reward of a certificate upon successful completion.  

All clinical radiology trainees in non–ACF posts are eligible to participate in the scheme, which should ideally be completed no later than 6 months post-CCT. The scheme is open to consultants and others on a case-by-case basis.
