RiiSE events are innovative radiology and IR-themed conferences aimed specifically at medical students and junior doctors. We give delegates the opportunity to explore future careers in the realm of medical imaging and showcase their work to an interested delegation.
At the heart of RiiSE is an aspiration to breakdown barriers between students/recent graduates and senior academics and clinicians in the medical imaging world. Our events give attendees the opportunity to meet with and talk directly to radiology trainees, consultant radiologists, academics and representatives from the radiology training and education bodies.
There are a staggering number of vacant radiologist posts across the UK; the potential which interventional radiology (IR) has to revolutionise areas of healthcare delivery in the future looks set to only compound this issue. Despite the obvious expanded workforce which is required, there is a lack of focus on the next generation of diagnostic and interventional radiologists. RiiSE18 and RiiSE19 made Edinburgh a trailblazer in this regard and RiiSE events are an excellent opportunity for medical students and junior doctors from across the UK and Ireland to explore these careers and learn about the future of medical imaging and image-guided intervention.
