East Kent provides a large proportion of radiology training within the Kent Scheme, with the other contributors being Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells, Dartford and Medway Maritime Hospitals. All Radiology trainees spend their first 3 years rotating around Kent (ST1 to ST3), leading to the FRCR exams. Trainees can then progress to ST4 and ST5 pursuing their chosen subspecialty interest. One of these years is usually spent in a linked London Teaching Hospital post, and the other within the counties of Kent, Sussex and Surrey.
Radiology is very Consultant-delivered, resulting in excellent levels of Consultant/trainee contact, and very good supervision.
Kent, Sussex and Surrey schemes provide MSc modules during the 5-year course, with a view to finishing with an additional MSc qualification from the University of Sussex at Brighton.
