Assessment procedure

An assessment panel nominated by The Royal College of Radiologists will consider applications. The decision of the assessment panel is final and binding. Candidates may be invited to attend an interview, and if an interview is held it will take place at The Royal College of Radiologists. It is intended that the assessment panel's recommendations will be reported to the Academic Committee and the Specialty Training Board for approval in late May/ early June and applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application after this has taken place.
