Radiology Academy In-Training Exams
Trainee's prepare for FRCR examinations using Academy resources in the MacLab.
ST1 A&E Plain Film Assessment
Plain film teaching sessions for ST1 trainee's are held on Tuesday and Friday mornings until the FRCR Part 1 exam. After the FRCR Part 1 exam, usually in May, ST1 trainee's sit the A&E plain film exam. Once the exam is passed trainee's can independently verify reports for A&E cases.
ST1 Ultrasound Assessment
Throughout ST1 the Academy sonographers feed back on trainee progress. Toward's the end of the first year trainee's are formally assessed on their ultrasound skills in preparation for on-call commitments, which commence in ST2.
Second year trainee's sit Body and Neuro cross-sectional assessments prior to being put on the on-call rota. Trainee's are required to have successfully cleared both prior to commencing on-call duties.
