1 Aug 2017

The Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK is seeking to appoint trainee representatives to the Part 2 Examination Board.

MRCP(UK) regards trainee involvement in the management and organisation of its examinations as essential. Successful applicants will become full members of the board, and actively participate in its work and projects.

It is crucial that the MRCP(UK) examinations are shaped by physicians who represent the workforce and reflect NHS medicine at its best.

For the Part 2 Examination Board roles you will also keep your medical knowledge up-to-date and gain continuing professional development by ensuring that questions are up-to-date and relevant to clinical practice.
