British Society of Paediatric Radiologists (BSPR) Professorship

Applications Open: Closing Date Sunday 31st May 2020


This visiting Professorship is jointly funded by the RCR and BSPR to highlight the role of paediactric radiology within the UK.


The visiting professor will be expected to undertake 6-8 visits to training programmes, over a period of 12 months, to deliver lectures and undertake appropriate workshops or small group teaching as part of each visit. One lecture will be filmed and made available online. The purpose of the visits is educational; material should be aimed at an audience who will become general radiologists as well as those who aim to become paediatric specialists. The primary aim would be to foster high quality, child centred imaging throughout the UK. Applications are invited from experienced paediatric radiologists who can provide valuable insights into day-to-day paediatric imaging practice as well as those who have a particular field of expertise or academic research.

At the end of the professorship, the successful candidate will be required to deliver a lecture at the next BSPR annual meeting.


Up to £5,000.
