Join the Committee

Help the RCR in its mission to promote radiology teaching at the undergraduate level

The committee membership currently consists of:

  • Undergraduate lead and chair of the committee
  • Five clinical radiology consultants actively involved in undergraduate education
  • Four clinical radiology trainees actively involved in undergraduate education
  • RCR Training and Education Manager

It is responsible for the following activities:

  • Working to increase the amount of radiology that is taught in medical schools, including looking for new and innovative ways of delivering that teaching.
  • Raising awareness of the importance of radiological knowledge for all doctors from the start of their careers.
  • Raising awareness of the specialty of clinical radiology among medical students and promoting it as an attractive career option.
  • Supporting undergraduate radiology societies in UK medical schools.
  • Planning and delivering the RCR’s annual undergraduate radiology day.
  • Awarding the RCR’s undergraduate prizes and bursaries

The committee exists to help medical students and the best way to do this is to have a student voice within the group.
