New “myth-buster” guide to support women in interventional radiology

 

October 2020: The RCR and the British Society of Interventional Radiology (BSIR) have created a “myth busting” guide to encourage more women to train as interventional radiologists.

While more than half of medical graduates are female, women are under-represented in interventional radiology (IR). To encourage and support more women training in IR, this publication is aimed at interested undergraduates, foundation doctors and trainee radiologists.

The leaflet features commentary from women in IR working across the UK and at various stages in their careers, addressing common myths and queries about IR training, such as access to flexible training, radiation exposure risks and working in what has been a traditionally male-dominated medical sub-specialty.
