Membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom - MRCP(UK)
The MRCP(UK) examination plays an essential role in the continuing professional development of physicians in the United Kingdom and abroad. For physicians training in the UK it is a pre-requisite for those wishing to undergo training in a medically related specialty. For those working outside the UK, it plays an important role in measuring levels of attainment.
We work together with partner colleges in the UK in the development and delivery of the Member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians examination. If you are a Fellow of any of the UK Royal Colleges of Physicians (Edinburgh, Glasgow or London), you can apply to join our examiner panel here in Glasgow to support us in delivering our PACES examination in a variety of locations in Scotland, England and, on occasion, Northern Ireland. You would join a group of highly committed individuals keen to contribute to provision of career progression opportunities to trainees in order to maintain highest standards of health care.
