A brand new on call radiology course for 2014

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." (Benjamin Franklin)

Education is a passion of mine, and one of the biggest challenges of 2014 for me will be a brand new course I am starting here in Leicester. This course is for radiology trainees preparing to start their on calls. The first Leicester on call radiology course will be on 7th and 8th June 2014 at the Leicester General Hospital. 

There are other on call preparation courses but I wanted to start a course that was more interactive and allowed maximum hands-on case reviews, rather than spending a lot of time sitting through lectures.






What makes our course unique?

  • Each candidate has time to view cases on individual iMac workstations for the whole of both days: no sharing or group viewing so you have maximum time to view the case by yourself
  • Cases cover abdominopelvic, MSK, vascular and neuro emergencies
  • Focussed case review by experienced tutors
  • Didactic teaching on cases with pearls, pitfalls and tips on protocols and techniques
  • Mock exam with feedback

There is a lot more information about this and the other courses I run on the course website.
