MRCP (Membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians) is a postgraduate diploma awarded by the Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom.

The MRCP exam comprises three parts:

  • MRCP(UK) Part 1: This written exam consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), and is intended to evaluate a candidate’s grasp of the fundamental sciences as well as their capacity to apply that knowledge in clinical settings.
  • MRCP(UK) Part 2: This section also has multiple-choice questions and is geared toward clinical medical knowledge and abilities. It assesses the candidate’s capacity to use clinical comprehension and knowledge for patient diagnosis, research, and management.
  • MRCP(UK) Part 2 Clinical (PACES): PACES stands for Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills. The PACES is an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) used to evaluate applicants’ clinical abilities. Candidates are evaluated at a number of stations on their capacity to effectively communicate, obtain information, and perform clinical procedures.

The MRCP Part 1 and 2 are held four times a year whereas the frequency of PACES varies with the location.

After the successful completion of all three parts of the MRCP exam, you will be awarded with MRCP(UK) diploma that paves the way to your specialist internal medicine training in the UK. The certification for the MRCP(UK) is approved by the General Medical Council (GMC) as a part of the UK postgraduate medical training programme and it follows the UK curricula and guidelines.
