Royal College of Radiologists (UK)

Dr Dan J Bell and Dr Jeremy Jones et al.

The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) is the professional body for radiology and clinical oncology in the United Kingdom, and is responsible for the clinical radiology and clinical oncology curricula and assessment of clinical radiologists and clinical oncologists who wish to gain Fellowship of the College (FRCR).

The Junior Radiologists Forum (JRF) is a committee of the RCR, its purpose is to provide a route of communication between clinical radiology trainees and the Faculty of Clinical Radiology and the College. Each training scheme has an elected JRF representative and there are also 'less than full-time trainee' and 'academic trainee' representatives. A small executive committee is responsible for coordinating the work of the JRF and represents trainees at many other RCR committees, for example the Specialty Training Board. 
There is also a Junior Oncologists Forum (JOF) which provides an analogous route of communication between the clinical oncology trainees and the Faculty of Clinical Oncology and the College.
