The Radiology Academy is situated in the Clarendon wing of Leeds

General Infirmary and forms part of the existing Leeds and Bradford

Radiology Training Scheme. The scheme is one of the country’s largest,

with an establishment of 69 trainees and an intake of 13 registrars per

year. The Radiology Teaching Academy offers a wide range of facilities

including PACS workstations, state of the art computer equipment,

dedicated teaching rooms, two lecture theatres, a library and a skills

lab. The latter is used for both ultrasound teaching and the development

of simulator training, whilst the computer rooms are utilised for

e-learning developed as part of the Radiology-Integrated Training

Initiative. Trainees have numerous opportunities to attend MDTs,

radiological teaching sessions and courses held regularly in the


The training scheme is held in high regard within the radiology and

wider NHS Community and places on the scheme are hotly contested.

We are currently trying to obtain funding for a fellowship in

Paediatric Radiology. Hopefully at some point in the future this will be

a possibility. Currently we could consider a trainee wanting to do an

OOPE but it would depend on the number of trainees in our scheme wanting

to do paediatric radiology at the same time and the Deanery/Radiology

School. We have established post CCT Radiology Academy Fellowships which

can be done in varies specialties including paediatric radiology but

would include teaching and training duties at the Academy currently for

3 sessions/week.

Our department also runs a course in Paediatric Ultrasound and one in

Cranial Ultrasound yearly.
