This assessment was designed as an exit requirement for trainees completing Higher Specialist Training. The assessment takes the form of a presentation of an agreed number of cases which have been studied during HST and which include cases reflecting the trainee’s special interest or research subjects.
The final date for first submission of Fellowship Assessment casebooks was 24 December 2014. This is assessment is therefore only open to existing resit candidates.
From August 2014, candidates who are eligible to sit either the Fellowship Assessment or the Part 2 FRCOphth examination are permitted four attempts each for the Part 2 FRCOphth Written and Oral Components or four attempts for the Fellowship Assessment.
