Applying to England, Scotland and Wales
Many doctors choose where to apply based on geographical location. Common issues to consider include:
- Do you want to be where your friends and/or family are based?
- What type of training scheme do you want to be part of – a radiology academy or more traditional scheme?
- Do you want to continue training at the same place you did previously?
As part of the ST1 radiology application, you will be asked to preference your preferred training location. Below are links to each Local Education and Training Board (LETB) / Deanery. Click to find out more about the radiology training in each area. Some deaneries cover more than one training scheme (see table below).
