The Edinburgh FRCR 2B Course runs twice a year, in March and September.

On each occasion, there are two 2-day Courses, comprising 6 small group tutorials, vivas each with 2 examiners and 1 candidate, long case exams and rapid reporting exams, and also a 1-day Course, made up of 5 rapid reporting exams and 3 long case exams.

The 2 day courses are Mon-Tues and Thurs-Fri. The 1-day written course is on Wednesday.


The written exams are all conducted on Mac Mini computers, using Osirix software.


The course is designed for doctors in the final stages of preparation for the FRCR 2B exam. We would therefore advise that for the best learning experience, you attend the course immediately prior to your confirmed 2B sitting.



** We are aware that the new timings of the 2A exam are causing difficulty for UK trainees planning attendance at 2B courses. We are sympathetic to these difficulties and will assist where possible. We would advise trainees looking for places on our courses to contact us ahead of time to indicate interest. We allocate places based on dates interest is first expressed. **
