About the College

We are proud to say we are the only Royal College in the UK who welcomes healthcare professionals across the range of medical and surgical specialties. We are also home to dentists, members of the extended dental care team, travel medicine specialists and podiatrists across the UK and worldwide - a truly multidisciplinary organisation working together as one.

Founded in 1599 by surgeon Peter Lowe, we remain committed to inspiring, nurturing and supporting our diverse and inclusive community of over 14,000 members in their quest to deliver the highest possible standards of care for their patients.

Our strong and valued membership community is enabled by our extensive clinical and non-clinical programme of education, training, professional development and assessment.

A friendly and welcoming College, based in the heart of Glasgow, we are an integral part of a number of intercollegiate groups including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the Joint Surgical Colleges, the Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians and the Joint Committee for Postgraduate Training in Dentistry.

We are a key player in influencing and shaping medical, surgical and dental curricula, training and assessment including MRCP(UK), MRCS, MFDS, JCST, JRCPTB and CPD.

Our members are the College. Many give their time freely to develop curricula, set exam questions, and contribute to consultations among many other roles. Last year alone over 3,500 hours of our members time was given voluntarily, working with employees in pursuit of our purpose to provide relevant, meaningful and inspirational support to other members and prospective members at every stage of their career.

We are proud to be a worldwide community of healthcare professionals which is open and ready to welcome you.
