A little bit about us
The South West (Bristol) FRCR Course was started in 2008 by Koshy Jacob (then a 4th year registrar) as a small project to help fund computers and books for the Registrars Room at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. We have grown steadily for the past 10 years always taking into account feedback received from delegates and consultants, both on content and design to become one of the most sought after FRCR courses in the UK.
The aim of the course right from the beginning has been to create the best FRCR course available. We have always been keen to give amazing value. We were one of the first courses in the UK to be authenticated to give examiners CPD points. We were also the first course to ensure that our examiners were giving the best value by their being assessed by an assessor to make sure their style of examining and their cases were of the highest possible quality. We obtained an institutional subscription to StatDx Premier, which we give to examiners and delegates on some of our courses
It has been our aim to connect with our delegates (and in general with the Radiology Community) and, presented by a variety of consultants, we have been running webinars on teaching topics for the FRCR 2B examinations.
Looking to the future, we have formed partnerships with a number of companies that give online practice for candidates sitting the FRCR 2B examinations.

The viva ratio was the best ever : one examiner per candidate. The 30 min sessions simulated the exam closest, compared to other courses- Luisa Isabel Disini
An excellent course. Very well organised. Good ratio of tutors to candidates. Would definitely recommend this to anyone preparing for the 2B exam- Sharmila Rao
I passed the FRCR 2B this spring . The intensive viva training of this course together with the examiners comments helped me to correct my mistakes at the last moment. The talks given regarding the examiners role and marking system were very instrumental in answering the real exam. I would recommend this course to all candidates- Gayani Senanayake
A very well organised course with cases comparable to exam standard. Thank you- Vijaya Pakala
This is a well-structured and varied course with an incredible number of rapid sets and long-cases. The viva stations and the opportunity to observe other candidates gave me a good grounding for the viva aspect of the exam, which I passed!- David Newman
