Funding the next generation of radiologists
21 March 2019
Four specialist trainees in radiology based at Southend University Hospital and part of the Essex, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire radiology training scheme, have been awarded bursaries to the value of £1,100.
They were awarded for academic work in recognition of academic
work completed over the last few years.
The four recipients of this inaugural award were trainees Dr
Anam Ali (ST3), Dr Carla Goncalves (ST4), Dr Alan Tan (ST4) and Dr
Sakib Moghul (ST3). Dr Al and Dr Goncalves received their awards
from Dr Sid Liyanage and Dr Tom Latham, co-organisers of the
Southend Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) 2b
course and Southend Radiology Registrar (SPR) On-Call courses, in
front of other radiology consultants who are part of the teaching
Dr Sid Liyanage, Consultant Radiologist, said: "The bursaries
are testimony to the educational environment and pastoral care we
provide with help and support from our radiologists, radiographers
and the medical education centre team here at the Trust.
"This money has come from a radiology education fund set up five
years ago and into which monies generated from two radiology
courses, the Southend FRCR 2b course and SPR On-Call course."
The courses have generated more than £15,000 in revenue, most of
which has been reinvested into improving the educational IT
hardware needed to run the courses.
