Why partner with us?

 

  1. Access to an engaged audience of medical professionals, with our core consisting of UK radiology trainees and doctors applying to radiology.

  2. Our free resources are well known and highly regarded throughout the UK radiology community (just ask any radiology trainee).

  3. We have a growing number of users (>100% increase in 2018 vs 2017), a very low homepage bounce rate of 19.5% and long average time spent on page (>5 mins).

  4. We will only partner with brands we think will be relevant to the audience. If you explore our website you will notice there is very little advertising, so your advert will stand out and catch their eye.

About RadiologyCafe.com


Radiology cafe square logo

Radiology Cafe's mission is to support applicants to clinical radiology training and provide the best educational resources and exam preparation material for radiology trainees

 

What is Radiology Cafe?

Radiology Cafe is a website providing junior doctors invaluable advice on applying to clinical radiology and supports radiology trainees with revision resources and mock exams.

There's detailed in-depth information about the radiology application process including example interview questions, latest competition ratios, advice on improving your CV and portfolio, and information on what it's like working as a radiologist.

For radiology trainees we provide guidance for the FRCR exams including revision notes, mock exams and up-to date lists of all courses.  We also have teaching resources for medical students.

 

How do we work?

We look at what doctors and students need help with and we try and help them.  That's why we created free mock FRCR Part 1 anatomy exams and FRCR Physics notes.  We're always looking to see what else we can add to Radiology Cafe to help trainees and applicants to radiology.  We have some fantastic contributors and only publish content which has been peer reviewed and meets our high standards.

When did Radiology Cafe start?

The idea for Radiology Cafe began early in 2011 to provide a portal for students and junior doctors to learn more about the specialty.  Within a few months the website was live and since then it has evolved over many years and helped numerous doctors with their applications to radiology training.  Radiology Cafe will continue to develop and grow as new material is added all the time.  Watch this space!
