Roentgenfest is Nottingham’s annual one-day educational and research event for radiology trainees and consultant radiologists in the East Midlands. The adacemic day consists of a morning of educational and research talks, delivered by experts from across the regions and sometimes further afield, followed by research and audit presentations from radiology trainees and academic clinical fellows in the afternoon. It is held every year in late Autumn in Nottingham, UK.
One of the main ideas is to showcase the work trainees have been doing locally, regionally and nationally and celebrate their achievements. For junior trainees it is the opportunity to present work to a large group of people. For more senior trainees and consultants it is a great chance to network outside of their local hospital and meet-up with colleagues from around the region.
Each year there are prizes for the best oral research presentation, best audit / quality improvement project presentation and best poster. In 2021 we moved to ePosters rather than paper posters (to keep with the times!) which was a sucess and will continue in future years.
Each year the event is kindly sponsored by industry representatives, showcasing their products and giving them a fairly informal environment to chat to radiologists. This strong collaboration with inductry has previously allowed us to host this event for free for radiologists and trainees in the region and we will aim to continue this going forward. We also receive strong supoprt from the academic school in the East Midlands.
We look forward to welcoming many of you to Roentgenfest this November!
