Our examination updates address any changes made to our FRCR examinations:

Purpose of assessment

The First FRCR Examination expects candidates to have gained a knowledge of the physical principles that underpin diagnostic medical imaging and of the anatomy needed to perform and interpret radiological studies. Candidates are examined against the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology. The purpose of assessment statements for anatomy and physics detail both components purpose, the required level of candidate training and the application of results. It is hoped that the statements will assist candidates, and those involved in their training, in understanding the scope of the FRCR examination and with relating the examination to other in-training assessments. The First FRCR Examination comprises two modules: anatomy and physics.
