Academy

Welcome to the National Imaging Academy Wales

The National Imaging Academy Wales opens its doors in August 2018 and will train the next generation of radiologists and imaging professionals.

Established with £3.4m of funding from the Welsh Government, the Academy is Wales’ flagship purpose-designed state of the art facility which will meet the increasing need to train more consultant radiologists across the UK. Radiology Academies are well-established in other parts of the UK, and widely viewed as a successful model for radiology training nationally,  and this Wales’ Academy will deliver the highest level of teaching to meet the increasing pressures imaging professions are facing.

The Academy provides part of the Wales Clinical Radiology Specialist Training Programme, which runs two separate schemes in North and South Wales.

The Academy will deliver the Royal College of Radiologists curriculum in a dedicated environment which is equipped with the latest technology.

Our training programme sees consultant radiologists from across Wales providing an excellent standard of teaching.
