The Royal College of Ophthalmologists, its exams are the most difficult, but it is the only way to obtain a consultant degree in England. While the other college’s fellowship only gives a specialist.
- Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow.
It is the preferred path of some doctors, and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons is evidence that the candidate has a good knowledge of the scientific basis of ophthalmology and has experience and competence in applying that knowledge to patients with common eye diseases, and to be able to manage patients and their eye diseases in a way Independent, safe and professional manner.

- The Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland.
- World Council of Ophthalmology.
The ICO’s International Council of Ophthalmology programs aim to assist promising young physicians from low-resource countries to improve their practical skills and broaden their views of ophthalmology. Colleagues are expected to return knowledge and skills acquired to their countries of origin and participate in programs to maintain vision and prevent blindness.
What does the exam include?
The FRCS exam is a two-part test that includes both theoretical and practical assessment:
After a careful analysis of the performance of the tests and the feedback from students who preceded the exam, Connect Academy divided the problem into two main issues that most students face, namely the lack of understanding of the basic theories, and the failure to focus on preparing for the form of the test. Narrowing options to determine the correct answer is more difficult than expected.
We know that it is easy to get lost in the classroom with many students so to ensure that you get the personalized education you need all of our classes are taught by the most qualified lecturers who have already successfully passed all parts of the fellowship you wish to obtain.
