Award of the Diploma of Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow indicates that a candidate has a sound knowledge of the scientific basis of ophthalmology and is experienced and competent at applying that knowledge to patients suffering from common ophthalmic conditions.


The Fellowship should be perceived as a validation of an ophthalmologist’s knowledge, experience and training.  Candidates achieving this standard are judged to have the skills of a General Ophthalmologist and to be able to manage patients and their ophthalmic conditions independently in a safe and professional manner.


Fellowship is not intended to validate sub-specialist expertise and does not provide direct entry to higher specialist training in the UK.



A revised format for the FRCS Ophthalmology examination will be available from November 2009. The current Part A and B examinations are being revised and will be replaced by Parts 1, 2 and 3. For full details please read the announcement below:
