Radiology Taster Sessions

Are you interested in a career as a Consultant Radiologist?

Would you like to know more about the training that you would undertake at the South West Imaging Training Academy?

If you are F2 or above and would like to know more, please look below for details of the taster sessions available.

Full Week Clinical Session

We offer a limited number (one a Week) radiology attachments, for foundation trainees. These are within the Radiology Department of Derriford Hospital, last for one week and also include two days at the South West Imaging Training Academy.

This taster session allows the individual to get a feel of the specialty. It combines spending time with consultants, radiographers and trainees. This is a largely one-to-one experience and will give you the best idea of what being a radiologist entails, and therefore what applying to train as one will be like. As part of this week, you will also spend some time in the Academy, this is to give you an idea about the environment and experience some of the training that is provided here.

All of the trainees that have spent time in a taster week have found it extremely valuable, either to confirm this is what they want to do or that it is not. Both are valuable outcomes.
