The Radiology Academic Network for Trainees (RADIANT)

The Radiology Academic Network for Trainees (RADIANT) is a national trainee-led consortium, supported by the RCR and the NIHR, aiming to:

  • Increase trainee engagement in audit and research, including recruitment to National Institute of Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN) portfolio studies

  • Increase trainee engagement in national and international scientific meetings

  • Involve trainees in publications

  • Improve research training for trainees

Launched in March 2019, RADIANT links regional trainee networks working together to deliver network projects including national snapshot audits, observational research studies and assist in recruitment to NIHR CRN portfolio studies.  

Trainees have the support of research-active consultants who provide guidance and mentorship.

There are annual meetings where audits and research projects are discussed, prioritised and selected for the year ahead. The first audit project was successfully completed and submitted to UKIO 2020. 

An annual report of activities is provided to the RCR CR Academic Committee.
