COVID-19: curriculum implementation postponed 

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on training, implementation of the clinical radiology and interventional radiology curricula has been postponed until 2021. Trainees should continue to use the 2016 curricula, and will be expected to transfer to the new curricula after their ARCP for the 2020/21 training year, by August 2021.  Further support will be available later this year.

Please note that dates given in this video have not yet been updated to reflect the delay to curriculum implementation. Trainees are not expected to transfer to the new curriculum until after their ARCP for the 2020/21 training year.

Radiology curricula 2021

Training curricula for all specialties and subspecialties are being rewritten in line with the GMC’s 'Excellence by Design' standards for postgraduate curricula. These standards aim to improve the flexibility of training and move away from the 'tick box' approach of previous curricula. They also hope to produce curricula that will better support patient, professional and service need, as set out in the Shape of Training Report, by focusing on generic professional capabilities. These broader skills are required by doctors across all medical specialties to produce safe and effective patient care.

New curricula in clinical and interventional radiology that meet these standards have been approved by the GMC. All trainees, except those due to CCT before September 2022, are required to transfer to the new curricula by August 2021. More details on the clinical radiology and interventional radiology curricula, and support for implementation, can be found using the links below.
