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. 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.
