Education and events

annual congress 2016

We’re going virtual for 2020! The BIR has made the decision to deliver all events for 2020 in a virtual format. This is to ensure the health and safety of our delegates, speakers and exhibitors as our number one priority. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but we will continue to deliver high quality educational events in a virtual setting over the next few months. Many of these events, including our BIR Annual Congress 2020, will be available for free to BIR members. If you are not already a BIR member we encourage you to become part of our community and take advantage of free and generously discounted events, the Online Learning Library, BJR and more.


For events which were due to take place between 16 March and 10 September 2020 these events have either been postponed or have been cancelled. Revised dates will be made available shortly. If you were booked on any of these events your booking will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date if postponed and you will receive an email confirming the new date. If the event you have booked on to has been cancelled we will refund your registration fees accordingly.

For any questions or enquiries please email

Our standard CPD accredited education programme includes workshops, conferences, live webinars, recorded webinars, training videos and our topical blended learning portfolio. The programme allows you to choose between a live event where you can benefit from interaction and networking or online learning from the comfort of your own PC, tablet or mobile phone.


Who is this for?

Our education is created for a multidisciplinary audience, although some events will have a leaning towards one profession. We welcome radiologists, oncologists, radiographers, physicists and everyone working in radiology and radiation oncology. We encourage teams to learn together and from each other.
