Webinars

As part of its investment in e-learning for Fellows and members, the College is running a series of monthly webinars alternating between oncology and radiology themes. The webinars will be facilitated by leading experts from each specialty and cover various hot topics and essential training issues. The duration of each will be approximately 60 minutes and RCR members will have the opportunity to interact live with speakers and fellow participants. CPD credits will be awarded and for those unable to participate, and recordings will be made available via the previous webinars tab (login is required).
