FRCR examination

The FRCR examination is set by the Royal College of Radiologists in the UK and consists of three parts:

Colloquially First FRCR is known as part 1, Final FRCR Part A is known as part 2A, and Final FRCR Part B is known as part 2B.

Success in all three parts of the FRCR examination, leads to the award of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists, and entitles the use of the post-nominal letters FRCR.


Before the introduction of the FRCR exam radiologists in the UK studied for the DMRD (Diploma in Medical Radiodiagnosis).
