As of August 2020, the deanery-wide teaching in Severn Radiology is all being delivered virtually. This consists of 30-40 half day sessions, predominantly on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons, spread throughout the academic year with break weeks around school holidays. The sessions will be delivered over WebEx, and links for sessions will be provided to the trainees by the Teaching Team.
Trainees are welcome to attend any session, but alternate weeks will be aimed at the “Junior” (ST1/2) or “Senior” (ST3+) streams. Each pair of half day sessions will be themed, and we aim to cover as much of the RCR Curriculum as possible, with some sessions focussed on subspecialties e.g. neuroradiology, and others on professional skills e.g. leadership & management, research and career planning. Sessions will be delivered by consultants and senior trainees from around the region, with some talks also delivered by Radiology educators from other parts of the UK. Past speakers have included the RCR President, Dr Jeanette Dickson and Dr Tricia Woodhead, Associate Director for Patient Safety at the West of England Academic Health Science Network.
The sessions are deanery-mandated teaching days. Trainees are expected to attend unless on annual leave, nights, on-call etc. Recordings of some sessions will be available for a limited time afterwards for those unable to make it on the day. Trainees should apply for study leave for the sessions, as per local process, and be mindful of their local rota requirements. Each stream will have 15-20 half days per year, equalling 7.5-10 full days of study leave out of a trainee annual allowance of 30 days.
Each local hospital site will have a Teaching Representative, who will be responsible for booking rooms, providing tech support, recruiting speakers and chasing feedback. The deanery has also provided webcams and conference speakers to each hospital site.
The Teaching Team will be collating feedback for the speakers as well as feedback about the organisation of the programme and planning of the sessions, in order to help with iterative development as the year goes on.
