Recruitment and selection into Clinical Radiology and Nuclear Medicine training posts in England, Scotland, and Wales is carried out through a nationally coordinated process run by HEE London and South East Recruitment.
All information about the process, including access to the application portal, interview structure and applicant guidelines, will be published on the ORIEL recruitment system.
All enquiries about the process should be directed to HEE London and South East Recruitment through their support portal. Please note the College is not able to answer queries about individual applications.
Specialty Recruitment Assessment (SRA)
In line with a number of other specialties, a Specialty Recruitment Assessment (SRA) test was incorporated into radiology recruitment in 2016. All applicants are required to sit the SRA at a test centre in January of the recruitment year. Applicants are ranked according to their SRA score and invitations to interview are circulated on the basis of rank until all available 600 interview slots are filled. Full details of the test, including the available test venues in the UK and overseas, will be published on the ORIEL recruitment system when applications open.
The selection day
Any details that applicants need to know about the selection day will be provided as part of the application process.

Accredited transferable competencies
