Clinical radiology curriculum


The clinical radiology (CR) curriculum aims to meet patient and service need by ensuring that trainees develop the specialty-specific capabilities necessary to become a consultant radiologist providing a high-quality service in the NHS, alongside the generic professional capabilities expected of all doctors.

The curriculum provides a training framework, describing the standard required to achieve a certificate of completion of training (CCT) and the expected levels of progress throughout training. A document mapping the 2021 curriculum outcomes to the competences in the 2016 curriculum is available to support trainees in identifying how activities completed under the 2016 curriculum provide evidence of progress against the capabilities in practice in the new curriculum.


Information on the nuclear medicine curriculum can be found on the JRCPTB website, including guidance for those transferring to the 2021 nuclear medicine curriculum, which will provide dual CCTs in nuclear medicine and clinical radiology.
