Typical rotation and training locations
A specialist trainee will typically spend 5 years in training with certain sub-specialties requiring 6 years, these include Interventional Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. The School of Radiology is a pan North East training scheme that is organised into Core and Higher training. Training placements have been designed with the curriculum of the Royal College of Radiologists at their core so that training posts in hospitals throughout the region play to the strengths of those hospitals and maximise the training opportunities of specialist trainees at various stages of training. A rotation typically lasts 4 months.
As a radiology trainee you could rotate through any of the following hospitals during your training within Health Education England North East & Cumbria:
