Our Courses

Each one-day course is based on the registrants evaluating cases on their own computer by accessing the radiographs online.  The emphasis is on this analysis followed by explanatory tutorials. Powerpoint lectures are very brief or eliminated entirely. Questions, between the participants and the teachers, are encouraged - sometimes utilising breakout rooms.

Several courses  are constructed specifically for FY2 Doctors and Emergency Nurse Practitioners working in the Emergency Department, and/or doctors working on medical or surgical wards.

Some courses are specially constructed so as to meet the needs of Radiology Specialist Registrars.

Other courses are designed in order to meet the needs of Radiographers - ie those operating the Red Dot Alert system or working as Reporting Radiographers.

Many courses are suitable for Consultants working in Radiology or for Consultants in disciplines where the radiological findings are crucial to diagnosis and management.  It provides a "test yourself" opportunity - on numerous cases - that is useful to many of these senior doctors.

All of our courses have been awarded CPD credits by the Royal College of Radiologists.
