The BIR - ST application mock interviews

10th December 2019  09:00 - 17:00

A day of mock interviews designed to help prospective ST applicants ahead of their ST application interviews.


Delegates will be invited to attend an authentic mock interview comprising the various stations followed by a post-interview debrief providing personalised feedback on their performance from radiology consultants and senior SpRs. 


This event helped many prospective applicants gain ST posts last year. One delegate that attended before said:


"I am grateful to say that, with the assistance of the BIR course, I was successful in obtaining a place to commence Radiology training from August, at Imperial College. I found the mock interview very useful at building confidence, and in particular it was very helpful to discuss the interview informally with current ST1s. Being able to practice in front of consultants made it quite representative of the real interview process."

The BIR - Artificial intelligence in radiology 2020

23rd - 24th January 2020

After the success of the last two Artificial intelligence events in 2018 and 2019, jointly organised by The British Institute of Radiology and The Royal College of Radiologists, we are back again in 2020. This time it will be even bigger and better with a new format!

This year’s event will be held across two-days with sessions appealing to our multidisciplinary audience.

Day one will cover talks on AI from a global perspective and the progressive research being undertaken across continents. This will be followed by a session on AI in oncology in the afternoon, with eminent speakers in this field led by Royal Marsden Hospital. 

Day two will cover clinical research-based talks interspersed with talks from the industry where representatives will discuss their pioneering work to aid the healthcare industry with cutting-edge technology. 

Throughout the two-days, there will be proffered oral presentations showcasing research being undertaken currently across various hospitals in the country.

We invite all radiologists (consultants and trainees), radiographers, physicists, oncologists as well as other healthcare professionals and those with an interest in AI to join us at this exciting event.
