Applying for Radiology

Entry into interventional radiology occurs at an ST4 level. Trainees must first obtain a Clinical Radiology position at ST1, and once core radiology training has been completed, apply locally for ST4-ST6 training in IR. Each deanery their own local application process for IR selection, although London training schemes are conducted via a pan-London application scheme. There will be places for direct entry Interventional Radiology in the future, although the details of these are yet to be confirmed - do keep an eye out for announcements.

 

Applications for ST1 Clinical Radiology training are becoming more and more competitive each year. Here, we have written a guide on the application process and each of the components within it to help you through the process.
