Am I eligible to apply to the FRCS Urology exam?

Questions HomeCategory: FRCS Related QuestionsAm I eligible to apply to the FRCS Urology exam?
Faris Azzouni asked 4 weeks ago

Dear sir/madam,
I have been practicing urology in the USA as a full-time independent urologist (consultant) since 2013. I would like to set for the FRCS Urol exam if I’m allowed. I don’t have the MRCS certificate and I have never done any training in the UK. All of my referees practice in the US. Two of them have the FRCS and FRCOG certificates and can attest to my knowledge and skill. My principal referee is the president-elect of the American Medical Association and is one of my mentors. I’m aware of the international version of the exam (JSCFE) but I prefer the domestic British version, if I’m allowed to set for it. Am I eligible?
Sincerely and thank you,
Faris Azzouni, MBBS, FEBU
Dodge City-Kansas, USA

Please go through this post to go through the eligibility criteria in detail.

We don’t think that these eligibility criteria are modifiable on case to case basis if your main motive is to get a FRCS degree. 
However if you are aiming to migrate to the UK, you can do it without FRCS degree via the CESR route. 
CESR stands for Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration. If you are successful with this route, it means that you will be automatically recognised as a Consultant in the UK for your specialty without undergoing any additional training.
