Radiology Curriculum

The Clinical Radiology Curriculum sets out the framework for educational progression that will support professional development throughout specialty training in clinical radiology. The curriculum defines the process of training and the competencies needed for the successful completion of training in clinical radiology. The aim is to ensure that trainees are fully competent to provide a high-quality service at consultant level in the NHS.

The Interventional Radiology Curriculum sets out the framework for sub-specialty training in interventional radiology (IR) and consists of training in core clinical radiology and higher sub-specialty training in IR. This higher training will focus on either vascular or non-vascular IR, or a combination of both, or diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology.
