Clinical radiology examiner recruitment

Why become an examiner?

“Being a FRCR Part 2B examiner is undoubtedly the most satisfying and rewarding highlight of my career, both professionally and personally. The privilege of contributing to the development of competent radiologists of the future, learning from colleagues (radiology as well as examining), and the comradeship more than repay the commitment and hard work involved.”
Dr David Salvage, Chair of Final FRCR (Part B)

Appointment process

Applications are anonymised and ranked by a panel. In some cases, consideration may be given to ensuring a balance of geographical and special interest representation, so if you are not selected one year it is worth applying again.

Conflict of interest

All potential applicants should be aware of the RCR's policy on conflict of interests.
