  • Paediatric Radiology
  • Breast 
  • Musculoskeletal (MSK)
  • Vascular
  • Neuroradiology
  • Head and Neck 
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Genitourinary
  • Oncology
  • Cardiac
  • Chest

Working as a Radiologist in the UK: What’s required?

To register for a license to practise via the postgraduate route, the GMC require international radiologists to hold the full FRCR qualification.

Opportunities are also available for international radiologists via the PLAB route however, in most cases, they will be offered the role of Speciality Doctor to begin with.

Take a look at our FRCR and PLAB blogs for more information on what each examination entails.

The GMC require doctors from countries where English is not the native language to provide evidence of their English language skills. This means passing either the OET or IELTS.

Doctors from within the EEA (European Economic Area), who have completed a postgraduate qualification in their home country, are able to use this qualification, accompanied with a pass in either OET or IELTS, to attain GMC registration. 


If you would like to discuss the opportunities available for radiologists in the UK, or if you have any questions about which qualifications may be required, please contact us.
