Doctors who wish to enter specialty training (at ST3) in the UK must hold the MRCP(UK) diploma, an internationally recognised standard of clinical excellence. Working with our sister Colleges in London and Glasgow we develop and deliver the MRCP(UK) examination.
Working with specialist societies
The Colleges in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London have worked with specialist societies to develop Specialty Certificate Examinations for the main medical specialties. Physicians in training must pass the appropriate SCE in order to gain admission to the GMC Specialist Registrar.
We rely on the voluntary support and clinical expertise of our College Fellows to run these essential examinations. Examiners can contribute to medical standards and enhance their own CPD; most UK Health Boards and NHS Trusts recognise examining as a supporting professional activity.
