R-ITI: Radiology Training

Online medical course on Radiology

Online medical course using images (including X-rays), ultrasound video clips and 3D diagrams helps to create greater spatial awareness and realism than textbook learning.

The Radiology – Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) supports and enhances the learning of radiologists. It has been developed by the UK Royal College of Radiologists and Health Education England.

During the programme, you can complete more than 750 interactive sessions that cover the breadth of the UK radiology curriculum. The training offers ideal preparation for FRCR* and equivalent examinations. It is also suitable if you’re a fully qualified clinician looking to reinforce or strengthen your core knowledge.

An Award-Winning e-Learning Resource for Radiologists

The Radiology Integrated Training Initiative programme includes case studies and practical exercises to enhance your learning. The use of images (including X-rays), ultrasound video clips and 3D diagrams helps to create greater spatial awareness and realism than textbook learning. Using self-assessment exercises, you can also check your understanding on key topics.
