FRCOphth


The College believes that training in ophthalmology and examinations complement one another throughout continuing professional development. The one is not a substitute for the other. For this reason, entry into Higher Specialist Training (HST) requires the successful completion of both Basic Specialist Training and of the three parts of the membership examinations.

Similarly, completion of training and the award of the Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) depends on satisfactory performance during training and successful negotiation of the exit examination i.e. what will become the FRCOphth examination for trainees holding the membership.

The College is conscious, however, that many trainees in this country will not necessarily wish or need to obtain the CCST since they will not wish to practise either in the United Kingdom or in the European Union. For this reason, the Council has decided to revise the criteria for entry to our examinations. It is no longer necessary for entry to examination to have worked in inspected and approved posts but only to have completed the requisite time in ophthalmology posts. Please note, however, that for entry to HST and award of the CCST candidates must still complete the necessary time in approved and inspected posts.

PLEASE NOTE FROM JANUARY 2003 NEGATIVE MARKING WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE PART 1, PART 2, PART 3 MEMBERSHIP EXAMINATIONS AND THE DIPLOMA EXAMINATION.

The Examinations Department strives to supply candidates with as much information as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact royal college should you have any specific queries.
