R-ITI

The Radiology Integrated Training Initiative 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 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.

For further information please contact RCRlearning@rcr.ac.uk

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.

For further information please contact RCRlearning@rcr.ac.uk


Supervisor skills facilitator

The RCR is seeking an experienced clinical or educational supervisor to co-facilitate the Supervisor Skills workshop on 28 February 2019 in London. 

The Supervisor Skills workshops are designed around the GMC’s supervisor training requirements. Those requirements include the need for all for educational and clinical supervisors to be ‘appropriately trained’ before being allocated named trainees. This workshop is for both clinical radiology and clinical oncology delegates and also covers the specific workplace-based assessments in the respective curricula. This day is aimed at clinicians embarking on a supervisory role and is suitable for consultants or final year trainees about to take on a consultant post.

There is a pre-existing programme along with slides, activities and supporting resources available.

If this is of interest to you, please send your CV and confirm your availability to the Conference and Programmes Co-ordinator by Friday 30 November 2018.
