The Society for Acute Medicine, the British Thoracic Society and the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK are seeking to appoint members of the Acute Medicine and Respiratory Medicine SCE Examining Boards.
The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK is pleased to announce the launch of a new set of quality criteria for General Internal Medicine (GIM) and Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) registrars, to be implemented from 1 August 2018. This builds on the learning and success of quality criteria for core medical training in 2015.
MRCP(UK) places great value on the feedback we receive from candidates; this is why we ask you to complete a survey after your examination.
We wish to advise that the MRCP(UK) PACES examination at Musgrove Park Academy, Musgrove Park Hospital, due to take place on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 March 2018 has been cancelled. South West England has been escalated to a red weather warning which is a ‘risk to life’ snow warning. This decision has not been made lightly but we have a duty of care to our candidates, patients and examiners and for their own safety we cannot ask them to travel in such adverse weather.
Join our live webinar from the launch of a new set of quality criteria for General Internal Medicine (GIM) and Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) Registrars on Wednesday 7 March 2018 at 6pm.
Those watching will have the opportunity to get involved and have their say during the debate which will discuss the new quality criteria and how they can help to support doctors in medical training, at a time when many are struggling to balance heavy service demands with the high quality educational opportunities they need to progress.
With the current weather warnings for the UK and Ireland, candidates are reminded to take this into account when making travel arrangements for the Geriatric Medicine and Nephrology SCE.
Further information regarding the weather warnings can be found at the following:
We are aware of the severe weather; please note the PACES UK examinations are still going ahead, and we will announce updates if centres have been affected.
Please allow plenty of time to get to your examination centre.
