About

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 Sandra Ngu

Events Co-ordinator

Dr Sandra Ngu

Events Co-ordinator

My name is Sandra Ngu and I am an ST2 Radiology Trainee from Hull & East Yorkshire. I have been passionate about Radiology ever since I underwent an attachment in my final year of medical school. This led to my first poster presentation at the SRT 2015 meeting in Bangor and I have been invested ever since. My goal as an executive committee member is to promote equal opportunities in training and research to radiology trainees, junior doctors and medical students. I also hope to increase awareness of SRT within the medical schools and regional deaneries so that it can be an effective resource for those who wish to pursue a career in Radiology. I am proud to be part of the SRT committee this year and look forward to welcoming everyone at the next meeting in Manchester 2020.

Foundation Representative

Dr Shahid Bobat

Foundation Representative

My name is Shahid and I am an FY1 doctor based in the North West of England. I am joining the committee this year as Foundation Year Representative after having the pleasure of attending the SRT 2019 Conference. I developed a passion for radiology after carrying out a self arranged placement in the department in my final year of medical school. I plan to start my radiology training after completing the foundation programme.

I believe the SRT provides a wonderful platform for the discussion and education of all topics radiology related. As the Foundation Year Representative I hope to make this platform accessible for medical students and foundation year doctors. I am extremely proud to sit on the SRT commitee and will strive to help organise quality events that provide a great deal of value to both radiology trainees and non-trainees alike.

Please keep posted for further announcements of upcoming events and feel free to contact me at shahidbobat@doctors.org.uk if you have any queries.

Dr. Lara Jehanli

Secretary

Dr. Lara Jehanli

Secretary

I am a Foundation Doctor currently based in the North West of England. I was delighted to join the committee in 2018 as a Foundation Representative and I am now undertaking the role of Secretary. 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 applying to a Radiology training programme in 2020.

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 I hope to use my experience and organisational skills to make the 2020 conference one that Radiology Trainees from all over the UK see as vital to their educational and professional development.

If you have any queries or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via Twitter or e-mail at secretary@thesrt.co.uk.

Immediate Past President 2017-19

My name is Yousar Jafar and I am an ST5 Radiology Trainee in the South Wales Training Scheme with a subspecialty interest in Women’s Imaging (Breast Screening & Symptomatic and Gynaecological Imaging).

I am extremely passionate about the work trainee led societies do for their members and am delighted to have been elected as the President of The SRT for 2 years from 2017 to 2019 to continue the hard work in making The SRT a dynamic and innovative society.

The society’s ethos is to ‘Foster Excellence in Radiology’ and as President I am working towards making The SRT a society that leads the way in trainee led initiatives as well as to be an innovative forum for Radiology Trainees across the UK. We are also collaborating with colleagues from Radiology subspecialty societies/institutions to achieve our educational aims and maintaining existing links with our surgical and medical colleagues to ensure that Radiology remains at the forefront of patient care.

The SRT is committed to ensuring we provide a stimulating and exciting Annual Educational Conference but also to be the first port of call for answering any questions related to training and exams. This year we will be working in collaboration with the Junior Radiologists’ Forum (JRF) to reach out to as many radiology trainees as possible to engage with our educational events. We have the full support of the Royal College of Radiologists in meeting our objectives and as a committee we are working towards making The SRT an invaluable resource for all radiology trainees and junior doctors who wish to pursue a career in Clinical Radiology.

If you have any ideas for our website or what you would like to see the society do please contact me on president@thesrt.co.uk

Webmaster

Dr. Lilian Sandu

Webmaster

My name is Lilian Sandu and I am an ST1 trainee in the South of Wales Radiology Training Scheme. In my first year, I will be joining the team as the webmaster and publicity officer.
I have a keen interest in medical education with some formal and practical experience in the field. I believe that dispersion of reliable information and gradation of usefulness of the multitude of online educational resources should not be limited to artificial boundaries set by the deaneries.
I hope my contribution, through changes to the SRT website, will be of use to those seeking a straightforward guide to educational resources.
