Clinical radiology in the NWSOR is based on the RCR radiology curriculum.

Training is tutorial and competency focused; assessed by regular work based assessments, appraisal and FRCR examinations. During the first 3 years, trainees obtain the knowledge and skills to achieve core competency to reflect a level of performance required by any radiologists performing acute imaging. In the subsequent 2 or 3 years of training a higher degree of expertise training to level 1 and 2 is obtained. Final FRCR is usually completed at the start of year 4 of training.

In addition, trainees have an annual review of competence progression (ARCP). To ensure satisfactory progression, trainees must satisfy the requirements for their eportfolio and submit the evidence requested.
