The Society of Radiologists in Training was founded in 1993 and represents the interests of radiology trainees from the United Kingdom.
We are a non-profit, self-funded organisation that supports the future radiology workforce through our Annual Educational Conference, links with the Royal College of Radiologists, the Junior Radiologists Forum and the British Subspecialty societies.
Our committee has included both senior and junior radiology trainees, foundation doctors and medical students who aim to promote the specialty of radiology to those who are undergoing training in the UK or abroad and for those who are considering a potential career in the specialty as well as to support current radiology trainees across the UK. We provide a platform for UK radiology trainees to express their views regarding training and provide our members with exclusive discounts that will certainly enhance the trainee experience. Some of the benefits of membership include 20% off BIR membership and 15% off Onexamination Physics FRCR subscription as well as discounts off FRCR Revision courses and events advertised on our website. We also work hard to organise the Annual Educational Conference to bring the best speakers from across the UK and put together an engaging programme for delegates, of which SRT Members are entitled to a generous discount.
We promote cooperation between radiology allied professionals including radiographers, sonographers, physicists and other medical specialties through such endeavours such as our ‘Trainer of the Year’ awards, sponsored prizes for our conference and through joint educational courses.
Our website hosts information to help trainees at all stages of training with educational resources shared with us from the British Institute of Radiology which are specifically chosen due to their relevance for FRCR exam revision. We also provide information on career advice, subspecialty information and courses that you may find worthwhile.
The SRT Annual Conference is a fantastic opportunity to network and engage with other trainees, present your work at a national event, learn from our experienced speakers and take part in practical hands on workshops that range from exam preparation sessions to state of the art modality simulations.
The SRT prides itself on our non-for-profit, solely trainee led approach which gives us independence but with the close support and endorsement of the Royal College of Radiologists. Our committee work tirelessly to ensure that trainees have a voice and that we are able to offer advice and the chance for trainees to excel in our wonderful specialty.

Dr Bhavana Shyamanur
Social Media Officer
I am an ST2 Radiology trainee at the East Yorkshire deanery and it is an
honour join the SRT committee this year by taking on the role of Social
Media Officer. Over the past year we have really seen the role of social
media grow in allowing wider access to online educational resources at a
time when training opportunities may have been affected in the
workplace. I believe it is important to keep this access open. Through
our social media platforms I look forward to supporting trainees and
those considering a future in Radiology by sharing the opportunities the
SRT can offer for medical education, research, and professional
Dr Lewis Cooney
I am an ST3 radiology registrar in the Mersey region with an interest
in interventional/GI radiology. I joined the committee in 2021 as
treasurer and I am passionate about promoting our speciality. The
coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated the key role of imaging in
maximising patient care, and has showcased how radiology is at the
forefront of medical diagnostics. I am enthusiastic about increasing
awareness of the role of the radiologist among medical students and
foundation doctors and I am excited about the future of our dynamic

Hi, I’m Charlotte, and I am the Secretary for the SRT for 2021-2022.

to join radiology as a career. I enjoy event organisation and am excited
to work alongside the committee to organise a fantastic SRT conference
in 2022 for all to attend.

I am a foundation doctor in Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and am delighted to have been chosen as the Foundation Representative for the SRT. Within this role, I am keen to share my enthusiasm for radiology and I hope to encourage foundation doctors to consider a career in the specialty.
The SRT Annual Conference 2019 was the first of several conferences at which I have presented. The committee and attendees were welcoming and friendly. I admired the committee’s hard work and dedication. Having joined the team, I look forward to contributing to make the next SRT Conference another engaging and memorable occasion.

Medical Student Representative
My name is Lucy McGuire and I am a 4th year medical student at the
University of Glasgow, having completed an intercalated BSc (MedSci) in
Clinical Medicine specialising in Clinical Neuroscience. I am joining
the committee as Medical Student Representative. I was the SRT 2020
Essay Competition winner and attended the excellent 2021 SRT Conference.
I have a longstanding interest in radiology, especially interventional
radiology. I hope that in this role I can help the SRT to inspire other
medical students to take an interest in the speciality and recognise its
value in medical education.
Dr Jordan Colman
I am a radiology trainee in south east England with an interest in Neuroradiology, research and programming. I really enjoy attending events about radiology, neuroscience and AI, having presented posters at some conferences as well. I also enjoy delivering and organising teaching whenever I can on radiology or anatomy. This is the first year I am part of the SRT committee and I look forward to working as webmaster with the rest of the team to continue to make the SRT great and help bring a fantastic conference in 2022.
Dr. Lara Jehanli
I am a Radiology trainee currently based in the North West of England. I was delighted to join the committee in 2018 as a Foundation Representative, I went on to be the Secretary and I am now the societies President. I have presented several posters in Radiology conferences, including the SRT’s 2018 conference, and won the RCR’s Steven Carstairs Essay Prize in 2018. I will be starting my Radiology training in August 2020, having been ranked 54th and offered my first choice post in the Mersey region.
Going from delegate to conference organiser has been a great but challenging experience. I have seen the hard work the committee puts in to creating such a fantastic conference programme. Making the 2019 conference even better than last year was a challenge, but I’m pleased to say the feedback from delegates and speakers has been incredibly positive!
This year and next I hope to use my experience and leadership skills to make the 2022 conference one that Radiology Trainees from all over the UK see as vital to their educational and professional development.
