HEE Changes to the MRCP(UK) attainment rules for 2023 specialty recruitment

14 Jul 2022

Health Education England (HEE) has brought forward the date when candidates will need to demonstrate they have passed the MRCP(UK) diploma required to take up a specialty training post in the UK.

The Health Education England (HEE) Medical and Dental Recruitment and Selection (MDRS) Recruitment Group has brought forward the date when candidates will need to demonstrate they have passed the MRCP(UK) diploma required to take up a specialty training post in the UK.

This date has been changed to the time of offer for that vacancy and will take effect from the start of 2023 medical specialty recruitment this November.  This will bring into line the dates for when College and Faculty examinations need to be passed across all recruitment processes.

This means that that trainees applying for higher specialty training in 2023 will need the full MRCP(UK) diploma by approximately 21 April 2023.

The next application period for UK PACES runs from 18 to 25 July.

You can read more on the HEE Physician Higher Specialty Recruitment website.
