Clinical oncology undergraduate day

The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) annually holds a free whole-day meeting for undergraduates with an interest in oncology.

The meeting is organised with the intention to inform undergraduates about careers in oncology, the training pathway, what life is like as a consultant oncologist after achieving a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT), and to provide updates in the field of oncology. It is also a great opportunity to network with your peers, and potential educators and colleagues. At a typical undergraduate oncology day, there will be talks from trainees and leading consultants in the field of oncology.
