Clinical Radiology ST3 

Applications are invited for a Clinical Radiology training programme at ST3 level. This is a national single selection centre co-ordinated by London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Recruitment team.   

Clinical Radiology is the use of imaging to diagnose, treat and monitor various disease processes. Rapid advances in technology and our understanding of the features of disease on diagnostic images allow imaging to be used at earlier and earlier stages of the diagnostic process. Similarly, changes in the characteristics of disease with treatment can be detected by imaging, which is frequently used to monitor progress.  

Clinical Radiologists are medical specialists who provide a diagnostic imaging service to patients referred to them by family practitioners and hospital doctors. Not only do radiologists use imaging techniques to monitor disease processes and guide patient management, but they also perform minimally invasive interventional procedures such as drainages, embolisations and radiofrequency ablation of tumours.   

The Royal College of Radiologists & NHS England (NHSE) London and Kent Surrey and Sussex (LaKSS) Recruitment are coordinating the national process for recruiting trainees into Clinical Radiology ST3 posts.
