Primary FRCA Teaching

Primary FRCA teaching is mainly organised and delivered on a local hospital basis. Please contact your hospial Training Programme Director (TPD) if you need more information on local teaching.



Final FRCA Teaching

Final FRCA teaching is delivered on a regional basis, and compromises a full day of teaching once a month. The delivery of the teaching typically rotates around the hospitals in the region, and can be either face to face or online, depending on the host organisation's preference.


A timetable for the teaching dates this year can be found below.
