The Faculty of Radiologists, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is the body responsible for provision of postgraduate training in Diagnostic Radiology and Radiation Oncology inIreland.  At present, there are 125 Specialist Registrars in Diagnostic Radiology and 17Specialist Registrars in Radiation Oncology in full time training in their specialties, spread across twelve centres in diagnostic radiology and three in radiation oncology.  Both programmes are spread over five years training, with the exam for the Fellowship for the Faculty taken initially in the fourth year.  The Primary Fellowship exam, covering elements of basic science relevant to the specialties, is taken at the end of the first year’s training.  After satisfactory completion of five years training, having passed the Fellowship exam, candidates are eligible for inclusion on the Specialist Register of the Medical Council of Ireland, and are eligible to apply for permanent consultant posts in their specialty.  Nonetheless, most of our trainees pursue further training abroad after completion of training in Ireland, principally the United States, Canada and the UK, but increasingly in other European countries.
