The programmes of assessment for clinical radiology and interventional radiology are described in their respective curricula.  They comprise an integrated package of formative workplace based assessments (WPBAs) and summative examination of knowledge and radiological skills, which will sample across the curriculum. 

Assessment will take place throughout the training programme to allow trainees to continually gather evidence of learning and to provide the formative feedback essential to improving clinical practice. These assessments will inform judgements made about progress at the annual review of competency progression (ARCP). Decision aids are available to support ARCP panels in making these judgements.

WpBAs should be recorded in the trainee's Kaizen e-portfolio and trainees may also use Kaizen to record other evidence of their progress against the capabilities in practice (CiPs) described in the curriculum. 

Guidance on the content of the first FRCR examination can be found below and more information on all of the FRCR examinations can be found on the examinations web page. ​
