Essential Radiology for Junior Doctors Course

Held May and November every year.

Cost - £125

 

The Essential Radiology for Junior Doctors course is aimed at:

 

  • Foundation Year Doctors - especially those with an A&E attachment.

  • Applicants for radiology specialist training - As well as being a vital addition to your CV, the course will provide you with skills to tackle the imaging station in the interview process and provide tips for the application process.

  • Core Medical and Surgical Trainees will also find this course very useful.

      

    What you will receive:

  • Certificate of Attendance - especially those with an A&E attachment.

  • Booklet with all lecture notes – inside a plastic wallet, including a pen.

  • Images of the Radiology Quizzes – emailed to you after the course.

  • Lunch & All day refreshments

  • Talks given by Radiology Consultants – who will impart their radiology secrets!

This comprehensive radiology course will cover all essential topics such as CXR (for example how to recognise lobar consolidation/collapse, heart failure, interstitial lung disease and malignancies etc.), AXR (e.g. SBO, LBO, volvulus, IBD, ascites) , and A&E radiology (e.g. all types of fractures from top to toe!).

There will be two A&E radiology lectures that will cover all x-rays topics that you need to do your A&E attachment confidently and well, without having to go on a seperate A&E course.

CXR and AXR lectures will cover more than you will need or will encounter in your clinical practice and post-graduate exams. There will be a short talk at the end of the day on how to apply for radiology ST training which should not be missed if you are contemplating Radiology ST training!

The lectures will be interspersed with imaging quizzes to test what you have learnt. Lecture notes will be provided for all presentations, so you can concentrate on the lecture and not have to scribble furiously to keep a record.

We aim to lay a solid foundation of radiology knowledge and teach you the basics as well as the pathology, taking you methodically through each modality, and make you sound like an expert! At the end of the course: 

  • You will be confident at tackling x-rays and scans presented to you in clinical practice - whether you are doing A&E, medicine or surgery - and be able to impress your consultant and colleagues when presenting patients on the phone or during ward rounds.
  • You will be more self-assured when hauled in front of a MDT to present an x-ray or a scan.
You will be fully equipped to maximize your chance at being successful in the interviews for radiology specialist training and at dealing with imaging components of postgraduate membership exams.

My interview went well and I was successful in securing my first choice job in the St. George's rotation. I am greatly indebted to your course for my success and am most grateful to you for your kind support. The questions I had were almost identical as the ones on the course.

Achieved 1st choice at St George's Training Scheme

 

 

I thought I did the interview better this time round and definitely attending your course improved my confidence and performance on that day, and allowed me to score higher at each station. Please thank your consultant colleagues as well. It made such a difference getting feedback and teaching from them.

 

Second attempt – achieved first choice Oxford Training Scheme.

 

 

Thank you so much to you and your consultant colleagues and team. My ranking was 34, and got my first choice St Bartholomew’s.

I went in well prepared for each interview station, and again your course gave me greater insight, and I can't thank you enough for the course.

Achieved first choice – St Bartholomew, London Training Scheme.

 

I wanted to inform you that I finally did it!!!! I got into radiology this year (your course prepared me so much better than the other course I went to last year!). I also wanted to thank you for all your continued advice and support. Thank you so much. 

Second attempt. Achieved first choice - Mersey Training Scheme

 

 

Thank you soooo much for all your help on the course, I genuinely believe I wouldn't have got into London if it hadn't been for the course. So I managed to get a number at St Thomas and guys, very excited about it. I ranked 6th overall. Obviously, my thanks extends to all the team on the day (especially to your consultant team), it really was a good experience before interview day.

Achieved first choice St Thomas’s & Guy’s, London Training Scheme.

 

Just wanted to let you know that I got my first choice job - starting in Bristol in August.  Very excited! Thank you for all your help with everything, especially building up me confidence. The questions were basically identical from your course and course booklet!

Achieved first choice – Bristol Training scheme

 

Your course was of such great benefit to me. It covered all what I expected from it and more, and was worth the journey I made for it considering I was on-call at last weekend. I have met great people and your team was amazing in delivering an outstanding teaching skills.
I loved Radiology even more.

 

Achieved first choice – Edinburgh Training Scheme

 

 

Can I just begin by saying, that without your course, it would have been absolutely impossible to have any chance at that interview. 

It was crucial prep for the interview and found the process exactly as was explained on the course. I think your advice on focusing on the other 3 stations rather than the portfolio one was crucial and probably the only reason I got a post. 

Achieved first choice – Leicester Training Scheme

 

 

The course was excellent, in both structure and content - and providing motivation through your talks had been one of the most useful parts of the course. Thank you for your kind words, I hope to build upon all that was covered for next week. And yes, will not forget to mention my love for photography!

Achieved first choice – Nottingham Training Scheme

 I just wanted to thank you guys for your help at the Essentials for Radiology and the ST1 application interview courses.  I enjoyed them and they were very useful in preparing me to maximise my marks at each interview station.  I was in the top ten percent and got my first choice of job.  The preparation helped me be a lot more comfortable in the interview and it was all down to you guys.

Achieved 1st Choice - Imperial Training Scheme

 

 

I want to thank you so much for providing the two courses I attended

with you present (ERJD & Interview Course).

I am forever grateful for the imput, time and belief you have imparted upon me during these two events, for had I not attended these two

courses I would not in my opinion be where I am today - with a ST1

training post in Clinical Radiology at UCH.


Achieved 1st choice UCH training scheme

 

 

The interview went well. I actually quite enjoyed it really as I felt that I was well prepared and that it was going smoothly. Thank you very much; the course really helped and the course material gave me so much information to study and the practice questions were so useful to ensure I had slick answers to them all and felt confident going in.

Achieved first choice – Aberdeen Training Scheme.

 

 

Thank you again for your course, which I am so happy to recommend to others when the time comes!!! I got the King's job yesterday and was ranked 11 and am delighted (albeit surprised). Would never have managed it without the heads up on skills mix!!!

 

Achieved first choice – King’s, London Training Scheme.

 

 

I'm happy to say that I secured a number in my first choice deanery, Leeds/Bradford, and I ranked 100. My background was surgical and will be going straight into radiology ST1 from CT2 core surgical training. 

Given how close everybody's scores were, attending your course was vital! I would advise future candidates to prepare answers to potential questions (which were basically identical the ones we practiced on your course and course booklet) and practice as much as possible, rather than worrying about the CV/portfolio too much. The CV/portfolio course I went to was a waste of time really.

 

Achieved first choice – Leeds and Bradford Training Scheme.

 

 

 

Just wanted to say a massive thank you and your consultant/ST team. The course and handbook played a large part in me getting the offer so thanks again. I scored highly and was I ranked 67 overall. I think what made the difference was the teaching given on how to score highly in the 3 stations and not to concentrate too much on the CV/portfolio station.

Achieved second choice – Cambridge Training Scheme

 

 

I wanted to inform you that I finally did it!!!! I got into radiology this year (your course prepared me so much better than the other course I went to last year!). I also wanted to thank you for all your continued advice and support.. Thank you so much. 


Achieved first choice - Manchester Training Scheme

 

The course was truly invaluable! I couldn’t have done it without the excellent coaching from you and your team.

Achieved first choice – Royal Free Hospital, London Training Scheme

 

Thank you so much again as the course did make a huge difference, especially to the describe the audit station, and focussing how to score highly in each station.

Achieved first choice – Newcastle Training Scheme.

 

Thank you very much Dr Win and your consultant colleagues, for the time and effort and belief you have given me during the length of this course it really did exceed my expectations. Now I know how to maximise marks in each interview station.

Achieved 1st choice SouthamptonTraining Scheme

 

Thank you and your whole team for all your help in preparing me for the interview. The course was very useful in structuring my preparation; the questions I had were all repeats covered in the course and listed in the manual.
