About - Our Story


Welcome to FRCR Tutorials, a website dedicated towards preparation for the Final FRCR 2B examination conducted by the Royal College of Radiologists, UK. I hope you find this a helpful resource in realising your dreams and get through the examination with flying colours. 

My name is Dr Sameer Shamshuddin and I am a Consultant Radiologist with an interest in MSK Imaging working at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary . I have trained as a Radiologist both from India and the United Kingdom completing Specialist training from West of Scotland Training Scheme. I have been heavily involved in teaching radiology trainees in roles over the years as Clinical/Educational superviser, RCR College Tutor/Trust Speciality Training Lead, and as Training Program Director for ST2 and ST3 at HEENW. I was twice awarded as Training Program Tutor of the Year in 2013 and 2015. I have been a member of faculty and invited speaker at several conferences and courses like UKRC, UKIO, Scottish MRI Course, FRCR Courses, Emergency Radiology courses and OsiriX courses.

I have immense affinity towards teaching and am passionate about bringing the web to it's potential use in radiology education.

This is my small step towards teaching the coming generation of trainees and passing on the tricks !

Our Aim: 

1. Develop and provide quality educational courses geared towards approaching this fiercely competitive examination. 

2. Rapid Reporting, Long Cases and VIVA sets representing the standards set by the college.

3. A pattern based 'An Approach to....and SCRIPTS strategy' geared towards the VIVA.

4. Be a One-stop terminal for all your needs !

Impact and performance: 

This site was launched on the 3rd of February 2011 targeting the candidates for the Spring 2011 sitting and has been embraced and acknowledged with flowing positive feedbacks from the candidates, peers and experts. We have had over 20 million visitors since we went live !

We were the first to conduct an FRCR 2B Course at the Royal College of Radiologists, London in 2013. We organised our onsite course at London in the pre-covid era but most importantly we were the first to adapt and replicate our onsite courses into Online platform

We have successfully ran our Online FRCR 2B Courses ever since and I must say it has been a phenomenal story and a credit to every member of our team. We have delivered several courses building on from the feedbacks we received from our candidates attending our courses.

The Online Library is published in Cloud PACS with DICOM cases and the cases  have model answers or a video file with case based teaching to help with self-guided learning. 

It shall be my constant endeavour to improvise the site with respect to content, quality and accessibility. Hopefully, we will grow together and be recognised as a good help the candidates to achieve their goals with flying colours.

Your feedback is much appreciated, which in turn will keep my spirits up and do better. 

Please E-mail me on drsameers@frcrtutorials.com to leave your feedback. 

Wish you best of luck in your quest for knowledge and hope this little effort puts you in good stead to face the challenges ahead

Best wishes
