LEARN MORE

The Royal College of Radiologists supports excellence in medical imaging and cancer knowledge, treatment and care

We collaborate impartially with our members and external parties from across the medical industry, refining the latest research and guidelines into relevant applications for radiologists and oncologists. This work can be carried out efficiently because resources and processes are shared across our two faculties.

This enables us to educate and support doctors effectively throughout their career, providing practical guidance, training and assessment. In turn, input from our members, through academic contributions, professional consultation and mentorship, drives the RCR forward.

Discover our professions

The Faculty of Clinical Radiology works to promote the specialty on a wide platform of activities, setting standards for entry to, and practice in, clinical radiology, and leading and supporting clinical radiologists during their careers.

These key principles, approved by PSSB and Faculty Board, are to be used as a framework for the activities of the Faculty and specifically in relation to the development of advice and guidance as regards the work of the PSSB. This work is developed by and with members and Fellows of the RCR and close collaborative working with other professional bodies and the public and patients.

The Faculty of Clinical Oncology works to promote the specialty on a wide platform of activities, setting standards for entry to, and practice in, clinical oncology, and leading and supporting clinical oncologists during their careers.
