Welcome to IR Juniors
IR Juniors is a UK-based community of medical students & junior doctors passionate about interventional radiology. We were founded in December 2019, and have rapidly grown since then. Our core ethos is to provide open access careers information and educational opportunities in IR to students & junior doctors, and advocate for minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to the wider public. IRJ is supported by the British Society of interventional Radiology.
About IR Juniors
Interventional Radiology is one of the fastest growing specialties within medicine, with cutting-edge developments and highly satisfied trainees. However, medical students and junior doctors continue to be underexposed to the specialty, with 70% of medical students wanting to receive more IR teaching.
IR Juniors is a UK-based community medical students & junior doctors passionate about interventional radiology & image-guided surgery. The initiative was founded in December 2019, and aims to educate medical students & junior doctors about IR and provide career opportunities.
Under the IR Juniors umbrella, we run two main initiatives - the main IR Juniors group and the UNITE research collaborative (in collaboration with BSIRT). We run educational & careers webinars, live conferences & courses, as well as maintaining a website & social media presence containing key information about the specialty.
IRJ is supported by the British Society of Interventional Radiology, and works with international IR groups to support our mission of open-access IR education for juniors.
