Specialty Certificate Examinations
The Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK, in association with the Specialist Societies, has embarked upon a programme to deliver Specialty Certificate Examinations within the new specialist training structure. The aim of these national assessments, which will complement workplace-based assessments, is to ensure that trainees have sufficient knowledge of their specialty to practice safely and competently as consultants.
The examinations are computer-based and have been rolled out from 2008 onwards. The following specialties are participating in the development of the Specialty Certificate Examinations under the aegis of the MRCP(UK) Central Office:
- Acute Medicine
- Endocrinology and Diabetes
- Geriatric Medicine
- Medical Oncology
- Palliative Medicine
- Respiratory Medicine
