RCR/BSGAR Travelling Professorship

Jointly with the RCR, BSGAR have established a RCR/BSGAR Travelling Professorship to highlight the role of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology in the UK, to encourage best practice, and promote the subspecialty.

RCR / BSGAR Travelling Professorship 2022/24


This visiting Professorship is jointly funded by the RCR and BSGAR to highlight the role of Abdominal radiology within the UK.


The visiting professor will be expected to undertake 6-8 visits to training programmes, over a period of 24 months, to deliver lectures and undertake appropriate workshops or small group teaching as part of each visit. One lecture will be recorded and made available online, which can be delivered as a webinar.

The purpose of the visits is educational: to raise the profile of Abdominal Imaging amongst trainees, to highlight the rewards of a career in Abdominal Imaging, and to foster high quality practise throughout the UK.  Applications are invited from experienced GI/HPB radiologists who can provide valuable insights into day-to-day subspecialty practice as well as those who have a particular field of expertise or academic research.

The successful candidate will work with the BSGAR Standards and Education Officers to support appropriate selection of sites, maximising effectiveness of visits and to ensure sites across the UK are appropriately represented.

At the end of the professorship, the successful candidate will be required to deliver a lecture at the next BSGAR annual meeting.


Up to £5,000
