About Radiology Cafe

Our aims

1. To give advice on applying to clinical radiology training

2. To support radiology registrars in training

 

How do we work?

If you're a doctor thinking of applying to radiology training then there's essential information about the application process and loads of help including example interview questions.  For radiology registrars we have tips and advice for the FRCR exams including an up-to date list of all FRCR courses, mock exams and more.

We basically look at what doctors and students want help with... and then we try and help them!  That's why we made lots of free mock FRCR Part 1 anatomy exams (woohoo!) and FRCR Physics notes.

Sarah Abdulla

BA MBBS FRCR

FRCR Physics Notes Editor

Sarah Abdulla

Editor of the FRCR physics notes at Radiology Cafe, Sarah attended medical school in Cambridge and is currently an ST5 radiology trainee at Norwich Radiology Academy, specialising in neuroradiology.

Whilst revising for her physics exam she was dissatisfied with the lack of concise notes and took it upon herself to write a whole new set from scratch. She realised these notes were extremely useful to others who had the same frustrations and so uploaded them online, creating the FRCR physics notes website. These notes are now hosted at Radiology Cafe. When not working she has crochet and knitting business, which keeps her productive during those TV show binges!
