FELLOWSHIP OF THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS OF EDINBURGH in the subject of OPHTHALMOLOGY, FRCSEd (Ophth).
Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of glasgow, ophthalmology division. The role of the examination is to set standards of ophthalmic care among ophthalmologists. The examination provides a quality marker to recognise best practice. 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. The examination syllabus draws upon sub-specialist expertise. The award of Fellowship is considered to be the validation of an ophthalmologist’s knowledge, experience and training. Fellowship is not intended to validate sub-specialist expertise. Entry to specialist training in the UK is governed by strict rules that would preclude automatic entry to specialist training of holders of the Fellowship. However, the Fellowship is recognised for the purpose of registration with the General Medical Council of the UK.
