FRCR 1 Oncology Examination expects candidates to have acquired a broad knowledge of those subjects that relate to the investigation and management of patients with cancer.
FRCR 1 Oncology examination comprises 4 modules of single best answer (SBA) questions.
1- Cancer Biology & Radiobiology 50 Questions in 2.5 hours.
2- Clinical Pharmacology 40Questions in 2 hours.
3- Physics: 50 Questions in 2.5 hours.
4- Medical Statistics: 40 Questions in 2 hours.
Cancer Biology and Radiobiology: the processes of cancer cell transformation and tumour development and how these processes may be demonstrated and the response to ionising radiation of cells both individually and grouped as tissues.
Clinical Pharmacology: the structure, action, use, and evaluation of drugs used in the treatment of a patient with cancer.
Medical Statistics: with special reference to clinical trials and assessment of results, and the epidemiology of cancer
Physics: the application of physical principles and methods in clinical radiotherapy, physical basis of the therapeutic uses of radioactive isotopes, radiation hazards and protection.
