FRCR Overview

FRCR Overview

The Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) exam is the main way in which UK radiology trainees demonstrate objectively that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to work as an independent radiologist in the UK.

The FRCR exam is made up of three individual components, each of which tests different competencies that are outlined in the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology:

  1. First FRCR
    • Anatomy
    • Physics
  2. Final FRCR part 2A
  3. Final FRCR part 2B
    • Rapid reporting
    • Reporting session
    • Oral exam

Each exam must be passed sequentially in order to progress to the next stage.
