While the usual route to Fellowship of the College is through examination, a small number of Fellowships without Examination can be awarded each year to people who are proposed by current Fellows of the College and who meet the nomination criteria. This year the window for nominations closes on 3 October 2016.
Fellowship without Examination allows the College to welcome to the Fellowship consultant radiology and oncology colleagues trained outside the UK, who have been working alongside College Fellows for some years, and who are making a significant contribution to radiology or oncology training or practice in the UK.
Fellows without Examination have the same rights and privileges as those with Fellowship by Examination, which includes the right to use the post nominal FRCR, and can include the right to stand and vote in College elections.
