What ‘good’ radiology training looks like – now and in the future

In a new guide for radiology trainers, the RCR calls upon training programmes, employers and statutory bodies to collectively invest in the radiology workforce. Increases to training numbers and the development of imaging academies are very welcome, but capacity issues in training need to be addressed for expansion to be sustainable.

Radiology Training – What good looks like, now and in the future aims to builds upon the ten-year vision for training set out in 2016 . Six years on and following the COVID–19 pandemic, the RCR look at how teaching, diagnostic and procedural training has adapted and the innovations that are likely to stay. We recognise that there is still lot of work to do, but we hope that training programmes will continue to build on these positive developments – allowing for the training of more radiologists year-on-year.

The RCR would like to thank all of the trainers, training programme directors, academy leads, heads of school and trainees from both Clinical Radiology and Interventional Radiology, who contributed to this guide. A full list of those involved are in our project acknowledgements.
