Sheffield’s Radiology Training Programme

Sheffield’s Radiology training Programme is well established, highly regarded and located in a compact geographical area in the centre of the UK. All facets of radiology training are available locally at every stage of the 5 year programme. We offer subspecialist training and fellowships in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology, vascular and non vascular interventional radiology, GI / liver, chest / cardiac, radionuclide, breast, MSK, paediatric and oncology imaging at local specialist hospitals.

Trainees have consistently achieved excellent examination results, including award of the Royal College of Radiologists’ gold medal. Recent graduates were all successfully appointed to Consultant Radiologist posts on achievement of CCT, a significant number of them taking up posts in hospitals on the rotation. Trainees also benefit from the Faculty’s extensive international network of colleagues who are able to provide personal introductions and a springboard to fellowships and careers in North America and Australasia.

We have an established Faculty with many senior members at its core. Sheffield consultants are represented on the Royal College of Radiologists’ Education Board, Training and Accreditation Committee, Scientific Committee and act as senior FRCR examiners. The Faculty includes many former trainees and was commended by the most recent Training and Accreditation Committee for its 'enthusiasm and commitment'

We have the benefit of a Department of Academic Radiology within the clinical department at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. There is a productive working relationship between the two departments. Specialty Registrars are given every encouragement and support to achieve publication and there are opportunities to present at national and international meetings.Sheffield successfully applied to host Academic Clinical Fellowships and Lectureships enabling trainees to simultaneously pursue academic and clinical studies.

Sheffield has successfully trained NIHR funded Academic Clinical Fellowships and Lectureships for over 5 years enabling trainees to simultaneously pursue academic and clinical studies.
