The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) annually holds a free whole day meeting for undergraduates with an interest in radiology.
The meeting is organised with the intention to inform undergraduates about careers in radiology, the training pathway and what life is like as a consultant radiologist after achieving a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). At a typical undergraduate radiology day, you will hear from leading speakers in the field of medical imaging. There will be many opportunities to network during the course of the day.
