The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) approved assessors are experienced practitioners who have a recognised teaching qualification and work in the same specialty as the student.
We are currently recruiting for the 2021/22 period. Please send a short CV (maximum three sides A4) and an accompanying statement to the Education Projects Manager by 16 August 2021.
Please note the vacancies will close when sufficient suitable applications have been received.
Review and edit R-ITI modules
The Radiology Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) is a huge e-learning resource owned by the RCR and hosted on the HEE e-Learning for Healthcare hub. We are currently coming towards the end of a significant update during which both the functionality and the content have been reviewed and upgraded.
Module reviewers for module 3 (gastrointestinal)
We are looking for one or two module reviewers to help with the work on module 3, Gastrointestinal, in order to get this update completed. This would suit either a senior trainee or a consultant radiologist working in gastro.
Module reviewers for module 6b (Neuroradiology)
We are looking for one or two module reviewers to help with the work on module 6b, Neuroradiology, in order to get this update completed. This would suit either a senior trainee or a consultant radiologist working in neuroradiology.
Module editor for module 7 (Radionuclide radiology)
The current module editor for module 7 is about to step down so we are seeking a new person to lead on the completion of the update and then ongoing maintenance of this module. This would suit a consultant radiologist working in radionuclide radiology.
RCR examinations are an internationally recognised benchmark of excellence as well as a vital element of UK training. The RCR is developing a bank of sample Part 1 Clinical Oncology exam single best answer questions to aid clinical oncology trainees in their preparation for this exam.
We are aiming initially to provide questions relating to each paper, i.e. physics as applied to radiotherapy, radiobiology, cancer biology including molecular biology, the pharmacology of systemic anti-cancer treatments and medical statistics.
We are seeking to recruit a panel of 10 clinical oncology trainees who have successfully completed the Part 1 exam to contribute to the development of this question bank by each writing sample questions with brief explanations of the right and wrong answers.
Time commitment: This project is expected to be completed within one year. Participants will be expected to submit their draft questions for peer review, prior to expert review, by agreed deadlines and to attend virtual meetings at agreed intervals. Participating trainees will be invited to attend a question writing workshop, receive a formal letter of thanks from the College as well as gaining valuable experience in the process of designing and writing examination questions.
If you are interested in contributing to this important project for the benefit of future clinical oncology trainees, please send a brief CV as well as no more than 200 words as to why you would be suitable for the role to RCRLearning@rcr.ac.uk by 5 July 2021
