A new examination centre for surgical trainees is set to launch in Bristol, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow has announced.

Eng Ong, Surgical Examinations Director at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, said: “We are delighted to open this new examination centre in response to demand from surgical trainees based in and around the South West of England.
“Ashton Gate Stadium provides an easily-accessible location, with individual hospitality boxes helping us to ensure the same, gold-standard examination experience as our other locations in the UK and internationally. With direct trains from London, Bristol is also a great location for those travelling from further afield.
“We are very much looking forward to bringing our experienced MRCS examination team to Bristol in October.”
The College is also offering candidates a MRCS Part B package, which includes:
- Free Affiliate membership to the College, providing opportunities and resources to support career progression
- No membership subscription fees for up to 12 months after passing the MRCS
Applicants can also receive a discount on the MRCS Part B preparation course in Glasgow, helping candidates to get exam-ready.
The MRCS Part B is an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE), examining applied knowledge and skills. It includes 18 examined stations each of nine minutes’ duration.
