The Du Boulay Professorship is a fantastic opportunity to promote and support neuoradiology as a subspecialty and research within neuroradiology and related fields, and is a joint venture between the Royal College of Radiologists and the British Society of Neuroradiologists. The current Du Boulay Professors are Dr Tilak Das and Dr Samantha Mills - you can read more about them below.
The visiting Professor will be expected to visit 6 radiology centres and training schemes across the UK, and deliver a minimum half-day educational programme at each. One lecture will be filmed either during a visit or separately and then be made available online. The purpose of the visits is to highlight the role of neuroradiology in the advancement of neuroimaging, promote neuroradiology and particularly academic neuroradiology careers, and provide expert neuroradiology teaching at the centres visited.
Funding: Up to £3,000 to cover expenses
