There are several routes overseas radiologists can take to GMC registration & securing an NHS radiology job. Whether you are from inside or outside of Europe, all international radiologists will need to satisfy certain criteria to fully register with the General Medical Council before beginning their journey in the NHS. The criteria you need to meet depends on where you currently live and practice, either inside the EEA (& associated countries) or outside the EEA. This article is designed to give you a snapshot of the steps you need to take to start your journey to the UK, no matter where in the world you live. Inside the EEA – click here Outside the EEA – click here “Doctors from countries around the world play a vital and significant role in our NHS and in the delivery of safe patient care. This is not only welcome but is part of the continuous exchange of knowledge in healthcare and should be strongly encouraged. They make an invaluable contribution to the NHS.” Joint statement from the Royal College of Physicians & Radiologists Inside the EEA Firstly, it is important to note that where we refer to EEA in this article this refers to all countries inside the EU, including Lichtenstein, Iceland & Norway. If you qualified as a radiologist inside the EEA or Switzerland, then the good news is that you don’t need to demonstrate your medical knowledge and skills to work as a doctor in the UK – you have already done this, and thanks to the EU your qualification is deemed equivalent. In addition, you will not need to apply for a visa from the UK Home Office. So, the main hurdle that you will face is demonstrating that your English skills are of a high enough standard to practice safely as a doctor in the UK & NHS. English Language Testing Any international doctor, regardless of specialty, experience or country of origin, must demonstrate they have sufficient competence of the English language. You can do this by passing either of the following: IELTS – International English Language Testing System OET – Occupational English Test Take a look at our helpful articles below for detailed information on both tests: IELTS – a guide for overseas doctors OET – a guide for overseas doctors REGISTER TODAY FOR 10-20% DISCOUNT ON LANGUAGE COURSES GMC Registration Having passed your English Language Test, you can now apply for full registration with a licence to practice with the GMC. For full GMC registration you must provide evidence of: Evidence of English language capabilities (IELTS or OET) AND Evidence of sufficient skill and knowledge (your equivalent qualifications) Understand the registration process in full & by reading our article: IMG Resources: GMC Registration for overseas doctors Job search We recommend starting the job search as early as possible.

You can browse our articles here: IMG Resources: Relocation & UK Life Brexit Many radiologists have questioned how the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU) will affect doctors from Europe already working in the UK, and those who may wish to work here in the future. We've been keeping a close eye on policies and developments to ensure that we keep our doctors as up to date as possible. While we await more information from the UK Government about what our future relationship with Europe will look like. What is clear is that European doctors are most welcome in the NHS with or without Brexit. At IMG Connect we do not see Brexit as an end to EEA doctors relocating to the UK, far from it… you are in demand and we will support with all the necessary requirements for entry to the UK, whatever the outcome. Take a look at our Brexit articles for more information: IMG Resources: Brexit Outside of the EEA If you qualified as a radiologist outside the EEA, then you will have to demonstrate that both your medical knowledge & skills and English Language capabilities meet the level required to practice safely in the UK. In addition, you will need to apply for a visa from the UK Home Office. Here we summarise the requirements for radiology doctors, looking at the following: English Language Testing Evidence of Knowledge & Skills - PLAB, FRCR or equivalents Tier 2 Visas Full GMC Registration English Language Testing Any international doctor, regardless of specialty, experience or country of origin, must demonstrate they have sufficient competence of the English language.You can do this by passing either of the following: IELTS – International English Language Testing System OET – Occupational English Test Take a look at our helpful articles below for detailed information on both tests: IELTS – a guide for overseas doctors OET – a guide for overseas doctors REGISTER TODAY FOR 10-20% DISCOUNT ON LANGUAGE COURSES Evidence of Knowledge & Skills in Radiology Overseas radiologists must prove to the GMC they have sufficient knowledge & skills to practice safely in the UK. For radiologists this can be done through three main routes: PLAB Royal College qualification of FRCR GMC - recognised or equivalent qualifications Route 1 - PLAB: The PLAB exam is a two-part exam that assesses a doctor’s ability to work safely as an SHO in the NHS, as such it does not demonstrate ability in radiology specifically. For this reason, PLAB tends to be a route for junior doctors who have not already chosen their field of specialisation in medicine. That said, for some senior doctors PLAB can be an attractive option, offering a quicker route to the UK, whilst still securing competitive salaries. If taking this option, radiologists can then take up training or a more senior post once they have established themselves in the NHS. Take a look through our comprehensive guides on PLAB: PLAB – a guide for overseas doctors PLAB 1 – a closer look PLAB 2 – a closer look Route 2 - Royal College Qualification of FRCR: Attaining a Royal College qualification is a preferred path for doctors who have already chosen their field of specialism i.e. radiology. For senior radiologists taking this route, they will gain access to more senior, well-paid jobs in the specialism of their choice. The Royal College of Radiologists is the Professional Body that regulates the specialism of Radiology in the UK, and Membership of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) is the full qualification attainable by examination. For overseas doctors, attaining FRCR will satisfy the knowledge & skill criteria for GMC registration and facilitate application for more senior roles in UK Radiology. Take a look at our complete guide on Membership of the Royal College of Radiologists to understand more: IMG Resources: FRCR – a guide for overseas radiology doctors Route 3 - GMC Recognised or Equivalent Qualifications: Some overseas qualifications are recognised by the GMC and accepted for registration purposes. This means to say these qualifications are considered as meeting the same standards as the Royal College qualifications. There are Radiology qualifications from several countries around the world that are currently accepted by the GMC. Find out if your qualification is accepted by the GMC below: IMG Resources: Overseas accepted postgraduate qualifications Tier 2 Visa: If you are a doctor applying from outside the EEA region you will almost certainly need to apply for a visa to work in the UK. Applying as a doctor or nurse has never been easier and there is currently no-restriction on the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) applications that a hospital can make. Furthermore, the list of specialties on the shortage occupation list is due for imminent review and expansion beyond its current list of specialties, potentially widening the scope for easier immigration processes across all specialties in healthcare.

Overseas Radiologists wanting to secure a role in the UK via the postgraduate qualificaiton route will need to attain Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists or FRCR in order to register with the GMC. FRCR is the UK Royal College qualification and the recommended route for radiologists looking to work in the UK as a specialist or consultant. IMGs from any country in the world can sit the FRCR examinations, provided certain eligibility criteria are met. These are summarised below along with a broad look at the following topics: What is FRCR? Am I eligible? What is the content and structure? Where and when can I sit the exams and how much will it cost me? How do I apply? How can I prepare for the exams? Passed? What next? What is FRCR? Radiologists become full members of the Royal College of Radiology and achieve the designation FRCR once they have passed the three separate postgraduate medical exams that make up the FRCR examination suite. The FRCR examinations aim to test a candidate’s knowledge and clinical understanding against the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology and the exams are a pre-requisite for anyone looking to go into a specialty training post as a radiologist in the UK. For more senior candidates, absence of FRCR will make it very difficult to attain a locum-consutant posts unless you have a recognised equivalent or specialist registration. When registering via the postgraduate route, only full FRCR satisfies the GMC postgraduate requirements for registration as an overseas doctor. There are three parts to the FRCR examinations: First FRCR - two-part exam, each held on separate days, over a two-day period Final FRCR Part A (both must be passed in one sitting in order to attain a pass) two separate single best answer papers Final FRCR Part B a reporting session a rapid reporting session an oral examination The FRCR examinations form an essential component of training for Radiologists in the UK. For overseas doctors relocating to the UK, the FRCR is one of two options to support full GMC registration (postgraduate qualification or PLAB route). For doctors who wish to secure a senior clinical radiology job in the NHS reflective of their current practice, we advise that FRCR would be the best route to choose. FRCR is often an essential requirement for jobs in radiology such as breast, cardiac, interventional, musculoskeletal and so on. Eligibility for FRCR in Radiology: First FRCR: To be eligible you must: hold a Primary Medical Qualification (PMQ) that is recognised by the GMC for registration purposes. hold a formal clinical radiology post in which they are actively receiving clinical radiology training. no minimum period of clinical experience or training is required to enter the exams Final FRCR Part A: To be eligible you must: have passed the First FRCR examination have acquired 24 months in a formal clinical radiology training post by the month which the examination is taken Final FRCR Part B: To be eligible you must: have passed the Final FRCR Part A have acquired 34 months in a formal clinical radiology training post by the month which the examination is taken Content and structure for FRCR - Diagnostic Radiology First FRCR Examination: It is delivered on a digital platform and as such is now also available across a larger number of test centres than before. The First FRCR examination expects candidates to have sufficient knowledge of two modules: the physical principles that are the foundation of diagnostic medical imaging the anatomy needed to perform and interpret radiological studies. The test is divided into two parts: Anatomy - image viewing session delivered on an individual workstation Physics - multiple choice written question (MCQ) paper Final FRCR Part A: The Final FRCR Part A examines candidates on all aspects of clinical radiology and the basic sciences of physics, anatomy and the techniques as per the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology syllabus. The examination comprises two single best answer papers, each containing 120 questions and covering a broad range of the core curriculum. Exams are 3 hours for each sitting. The paper comprises a mix of questions from across a wide range of the curriculum: Cardiothoracic and Vascular Musculoskeletal and Trauma Gastro-intestinal Genito-urinary, Adrenal, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Breast Paediatric Central Nervous and Head & Neck Final FRCR Part B: This part to the assessment examines candidates on all aspects of clinical radiology against the curriculum and consists of three components. All components are examined by an image viewing session delivered on individual workstations. a reporting station rapid reporting session an oral examination Updates to the exam formats in light of COVID-19: Given the disruption caused by COVID-19 it is advised to keep updating yourself of the RCR examination changes and updates posted on their website. This link here specifically takes you to the examination updates section. Information on the dates, fees and venues for the FRCR examinations are found withink. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic most exams have now moved online in some form or another, with remote proctering (invigilation) in place to prevent cheating and ensure continuation of exam settings. First FRCR Examination in Clinical Radiology: An online invigilation (proctoring) element will be introduced for both modules from June 2021. This will enable you to sit both modules at a location of their choosing rather than attending an RCR exam venue. You will need to ensure minimum software, a stable internet connection and an appropriate examination environment. Our third-party proctoring service – Examity – provides a computer-readiness check prior to the examination to enable candidates to check suitability of their set-up. On the RCR page here you'll find a number of instruction and techincal support guides and videos - it is highly recommended to read through all of these before applying. FRCR Part 2A (Radiology) - CR2A: This examination will be proctored online. The examination is delivered by a software (Speedwell) which can now be integrated with Examity’s examination proctoring system, allowing candidates to take secure high-stake examinations at home or at a place of the candidate’s choosing where they should have a stable internet connection, a quiet working atmosphere and must be on their own. See our remote invigilation (proctoring) guidance for further information. FRCR Part 2B (Radiology) - CR2B: The reporting component of this examination will be computed based at the venue candidates have chosen. Candidates will receive a username and password to access the examination. The reporting instructional video and accompanying demonstration site should be viewed prior to the examination. The oral component will also be delivered to candidates in venues, via video conference, and further detail shows in the orals guidance video. Examination content will be shared via MS Teams and candidates will be able to take control of the mouse and access functionality to manipulate images. After 30 minutes candidates will move to the second room and complete the second 30-minute session of the oral exam with different examiners. As an overseas candidate, where & when can I sit the exams and how much will they cost me? This link here specifically takes you to the examination updates section. Information on the dates, fees and venues for the FRCR examinations are found within. How do I apply for the FRCR examinations? UK Trainees are given priority for examination places, whilst overseas candidates are offered those places not taken via a ballot system following the application closing date. The application process for Final FRCR Part B is a little different for overseas candidates. As an IMG you should not apply online, instead applications should be emailed directly to the Royal College. How should I prepare for the FRCR exams? With lots of materials online we have discussed with IMGs the best place to start looking for resources and materials relating to the exams. Most IMGs recommended starting with the Royal College, who have created useful resources to help you prepare, see below: Syllabus: The syllabus for these examinations can be found in the Specialty Training Curriculum for Clinical Radiology. Instructional videos and demonstrations: The Royal College recommends that applicants familiarise themselves with the platform via the instructional videos and accompanying demonstration site found here. Sample questions: The Royal College created useful sample questions and answer sheets to help you prepare for each exam: FRCR Part 1 sample questions & answer sheet Final FRCR Part A & answer sheets Final FRCR Part B – sample image General FRCR exam advice: There are also many useful resources to offer more general advice for each section of the FRCR examinations, including: Anatomy examination advice First FRCR instructions for candidates Final FRCR Part A format and question advice TNM Staging – required knowledge to answer questions Final FRCR Part B – instructions for candidates Examiners report – to help prepare for future sittings I passed the FRCR exams! What next? First of all, congratulations! After you have passed all three parts of your FRCR examinations, you can apply for a full registration with a license to practice. Once the GMC have approved your application, you can work as a doctor in the UK.

Most overseas radiologists coming to the UK want to attain their CESR in Radiology. In this article we look at the specialty specific guidance on evidence required for entry onto the Specialist Register for Clinical Radiology. This is entry to the specialist registration with a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration or CESR. What is CESR in Clinical Radiology in the NHS? As a Clinical Radiology specialist, attaining CESR will mean you are qualified to practice at consultant level in the NHS in Clinical Radiology. Have a read through our CESR articles found in the IMG Library to understand a little more. Do I need FRCR to attain CESR in Clinical Radiology? Not necessarily. Whilst it is a benefit to attain FRCR, and you may have already attained MRCP or FRCR as your route to GMC registration, you do not necessarily require FRCR to attain CESR in Clinical Radiology. Any doctor wishing to attain Specialist Registration via the CCT route must attain FRCR. What is the indicative period of training for a CCT in Clinical Radiology? The indicative period of training for a CCT in Clinical Radiology is five years it is highly unlikely that you would achieve the competencies required for a CCT in a shorter period of time. This training consists of the following: 3 years in Core Training AND 2 years in Higher Training During Higher Training, competence is expected to be achieved at Level 1 or Level 2 which indicates the greater degree of expertise to be achieved by those intending to practice in one or more special interest areas. CESR applicants must demonstrate that they have achieved the competencies in each of these areas. You should refer to the Clinical Radiology Curriculum documentation before you make your application to ensure that you can demonstrate the required competencies. Submitting Evidence: Do not submit original documents – this is very important. All your copies, other than qualifications you’re getting authenticated must be accompanied by a proformas signed by the person who is attesting to the validity and accuracy of your evidence (your verifier). It is very important that you read an explanation of how to do this in the GMC’s important notice about evidence. Please note you will also need to submit translations of any documents that are not in English and you must ensure the translations you submit meet the GMC translation requirements. How much evidence should you submit? The GMC recognises that doctors will often not have all the evidence required for a complete CESR application, often many doctors will start their application and delay starting their application until they are able to gather all the evidence. The evidence must cover the knowledge, skills and qualifications to demonstrate the required competencies in all areas of the Clinical Radiology Curriculum. If evidence is missing from any one area of the curriculum, then the application will fail. If you have a piece of evidence that is relevant to more than one domain, do not include multiple copies in your bundle. Instead include one copy and list it in your evidence list under each relevant area, stating that the document is located elsewhere. The GMC asks that only evidence that is strictly relevant is sent as it will help them to process the application quicker. The guidance on compiling your evidence will help you to decide what is relevant and what is not – make sure you are reading the latest version on the GMC website – here. It is important to note that evidence that is more than five years old will be given less weight than more recent evidence, so you may not need to include it. As a general guide, an application for CESR could expect to see around 800-1000 pages of evidence. Types of Evidence: The types of evidence are divided into four different domains, the GMC recommends that you apportion the evidence provided as per the pie chart below: Please note, you cannot compensate for evidence lacking in one area by providing more evidence in another area. Key Evidence Requirements – advice from the FRCR’s Equivalence Committee: Evidence must demonstrate that you have achieved ALL the requirements and competencies as set down in the relevant CCT curriculum. Where you have worked in a specialised area for a substantial period of time, evidence will be required to the following effect: That at one stage in your career you achieved the requirements and competencies of the relevant specialty curriculum These skills have been maintained within the last five years Your current specialised practice allows you to meet all of the domains above You must submit evidence to demonstrate that you can practise competently and independently across the breadth of the CCT curriculum Key Evidence Requirements – Summarised: In summary you are expected to demonstrate competence across the core requirements of the radiology specific content of the curriculum: breast, cardiac, emergency radiology, gastro-intestinal, general and non-vascular intervention, head and neck, moledcular imaging, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology, oncological, paediatric imaging, radionuclide radiology, thoracic, uro-gynaecological and vascular radiology, in the relevant technique-based areas (plain film including mammography, CT, US, MRI, nonvascular interventional procedures, fluoroscopy) You are also expected to demonstrate the equivalent Level 1 and/or Level 2 competencies required for Higher training, in one or more areas of special interests. Key Documents to submit with your application: Take a look at the GMC’s SGPC – SSG document to affirm the information above and to understand the key documents recommended by the Royal College of Radiology’s Equivalence Committee. Make sure to anonymise your evidence: It is very important to anonymise your evidence before submitting it to the GMC. You must remove the following: All patient identifying details Details of patients’ relatives Details of colleagues that you have assessed, written a reference for, or who have been involved in a complaint you have submitted. This includes: names (first and last) addresses contact details such as phone numbers or email addresses NHS numbers & other individual patient numbers GMC numbers In Summary: If you have any questions or uncertainties, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the IMG Connect team. However, your official point of reference for any queries should the GMC – they can answer and provide the most updated information on CESR applications for overseas Radiologists looking to work as NHS Consultants in Clinical Radiology.
