East Midlands FRCR 2b course


The East Midlands FRCR 2b course is held each March and September in Leicester, and has a highly successful history in preparing candidates for the rapid reporting, long case, and viva components of the FRCR 2b examination. The course was founded by Dr Ram Vaidhyanath and Dr Vimal Raj, with expert input from former College examiner Dr Richard Coulden.

We strive to match the exact format of the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) examination in order for delegates to experience the pressure of performing in exam conditions. combined with non-threatening, constructive, and friendly feedback.

More recently we have been early adopters of OsiriX and Apple® technology and we are therefore experienced in delivering all components of the exam in a digital format. Delegates have ample opportunity to practice and undertake reporting on individual workstations as used in the RCR exam. Viva examinations are conducted with two examiners per delegate and time is provided for feedback after each session.

The fee for each course is inclusive of meals and refreshments. Accommodation at preferential rates is also available at Holiday Inn Leicester. If you are a Leicester or Nottingham trainee, your course fee is subsidised by the East Midlands Deanery. The East Midlands Deanery assisted in the acquisition of the iMacs and the expansion of the course to its current size.

We cordially invite all candidates and examiners to join us for a course dinner for informal discussion and relaxation after the first day. We are therefore confident we can provide delegates with a valuable, worthwhile, and positive experience with us in Leicester!
