Academy teaching at Leeds Teaching Hospitals
In response to the national shortage of Radiologists, the Department of Health and the Royal College of Radiologists developed centres (or academies) dedicated to training more radiologists. These academy schemes take on more trainees than other schemes of similar sizes and teach through a mixture of clinical experience, tutorials, simulators, imaging banks, and classic teaching methods. More academies have recently been set up to help improve and facilitate radiology training.
