Educational resources

The College runs an extensive programme of symposia, updates and courses throughout the year. We are acutely aware that distance and time differences make it difficult for many of you to attend these events in person, so we offer:

Live webstreams of events

Selected events are webstreamed live to a number of venues around the world, including sites in Malaysia, India, Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Kenya, Sudan and Malta. If you are a Fellow of the College and are interested in setting up a link at your hospital or university, for full or part-days as suits local time, please contact Jeanette Stevenson, Head of Education, at

RCPE Online Education Portal

A wide range of educational material covering over 20 medical specialties is available on the College’s online education portal. This is of particular value to our international colleagues.

The portal contains:

  • Over 120 lectures from RCPE symposia
    By expert speakers with accompanying abstracts
  • Around 10 specialty modules
    With articles, interactive cases, quizzes and self-assessment enabling you to gain a certificate of completion from RCPE
  • Over 60 lectures from Evening Medical Updates
    Based on common presentations as defined in the UK General Internal Medicine training curriculum

New material is added monthly. If you haven’t already used the portal don’t miss out - log on at using your College username and password.

Material is archived after three years so you can always trust that the content is up-to-date.
