The Course


King’s FRCR 2B course is a long established course which has continued to evolve from 1985, and was initially set-up by Professor John Karani and Professor Philip Gishen. In the past names associated with the course were Professor Grainger, Dr Allison, Professor Armstrong, Dr Reznek, Professor Carty, Dr Craig and Dr Field.


Our sole purpose is to help radiology trainees obtain success in  the daunting final FRCR 2B examination.


Most candidates have enough radiological knowledge to pass the exam, but are sometimes let down due to poor technique and timing. The intensive 2-day weekend course provides a platform for revision and fine tuning in examination technique/timing.

The Setup

The set-up of this course is being reworked to match the new exam layout, this is not yet finalised so please contact us if you have questions on this.

The course number is limited to 30 to maximise the focussed attention we can give to delegates.


We designed the course format and content with the help of former FRCR examiners and Consultants interested in teaching and will include: 


  • Four viva sessions (2 hours each) 


Sessions are conducted with no more than three candidates and each candidate undergoes a one-to-one viva session with the tutor followed by individual feedback.


  • Four practice examinations (1hr 15 mins viewing time + 45 mins tutor feedback)


During this session the candidate will analyse rapid reporting and long cases. Following this, candidates have the opportunity to review the cases with the session tutor. At the end of each film viewing session, each candidate will also receive a copy of the proposed model answers for that session. We want to challenge the delegates and will have a wide selection of ‘gold medal’ and Aunt Minnie type cases to help you not only pass but excel in the exam.


The course fee is inclusive of:

  • Individual delegate welcome pack containing answer sheets, a timetable and a helpful 'hints and tips' document written with the help of previous FRCR2b examiners.

  • Breakfast and hot lunch both days.

  • Free tea and coffee facilities to get you through the day.
